silly hamster

once upon a time this hamster
basically happygolucky deplanes,
crinkles whiskersnout because a nearly
murderous humidity lounges in red
but shrugs – the basically happygolucky
hamster shrugs – and says the layout looks
mighty livable as the pamphlets
pictorially depicted so whistles
while unpacking and then getting into
the building plans while sipping pekoe teas

and seeing to shrubbery trims, notices
peripherally the humidity
deepen and darken but increases whistles
in volume and rate so to subconsciously
ignore suffocation symptoms and says
the movement in the background has meaning but plays
double dumb deep down knowing a quick
simple glance would show walls believed belonged to
dead leather are scales and the boa
constrictor is very much alive

About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
