Sad

By Montaffera

My garrulous pen
Silent
As the bulb flickers
Annoyingly, overhead.

My electronic slave
Whirs
As an avalanche is hanging
Out of shot.

For I am morose:
Sad, and
Adrift on a windless lake
Sans paddle or tide.

My seat creaks in protest
But
I’ve misplaced the vital thread –
A whisper unheard.
