The clothes dance
out of the closet
ruffled and whispering
the empty evening
Color the matter
you’ve got to leave us alone
This year had built
A long winter
breaking people down
5 thoughts on “Snippets 254-258”
#255 really speaks to me! I had that experience this morning!
Now that sounds like fun to me.
The clothes could be fun or creepy–I can’t quite decide. I do know closet doors should always be shut at night.
258 is so evocative.
I think everything has its own spirit though we may not recognize how it exists or communicates (if it does). The idea of all these thoughts, activities, and so on going on around us and we are not knowing, that idea has always been in my head since I was a child. I don’t find it scary but I do feel at times it certainly makes for a crowded experience. And I totally agree, closet doors must be closed at night. And my hand or foot must never go over the edge of the bed, especially the side by the wall, if the bed is near the wall.
