Today, I Missed the Blues

 

Today, I Missed the Blues

Swallowed by chores
and errands,
darting to the market

for a jar of olives,
a bag of chips,
scraping melted cheese

of the skillet,
filling the feeder
with fresh seed,

I had little time to sink
into this chair,
listen to a fat man

wail about the rain,
a rain, cold and hard,
a clarinet whining

like a sad cat,
a sad cat walking
in the rain, the dark rain.
