Across the street
She yells and screams
Her muffled words have rhythm
Like a cradle
A balancing act
She walks a brisk pace
Her words angry
People look away, quickly
I hear words
Day and day and hour and hour
Talk, talk.

She's smart looking! Not me :)

"Talk talk"...i know i am doing that a lot...bored myself...especially the preaching i do...but i'm bored when i don't talk too :-)


Lorraine said...

The chatter and hum of a city - nope not for me thanks. Love your words here chère amie.

Lorraine said...

Oh Brian thanks for the compliment it swayed me ;)

I can imagine the scene. Like the "rhythm/
Like a cradle" - the noise of a rant can weave its own cacoon (I might use that). Well said/imaged, but me the minimalist would have left the last 4 lines off.

I love the much movement in it...I can feel her stress! I am her sometimes unfortunately during the day. Not right now, though...I'm about to drift off to sleep now to the sound of soft rain outside my window. :)

Lorraine said...

Oh yes I can see how much better it would flow Comrade, still part of me wants the whole package 'cause what she was saying was hitting home ;)

Kristin, it has to come out one way or the other, aren't you glad you can do so with your words ;) thanks sweety

Nowadays it's hard to tell the crazy people who are talking to themselves from the ones who are blathering away on their cellphones while they should be concentrating on something else...I've decided they're all crazy--and that simplifies it. :)

Lorraine said...

Timoteo, I don't say a world, and yet I swear I'm crazier then all of them ;)
