More Than a Pastime

From the collection published in 2017, Redirection.

More Than a Pastime

The dropped pencil rolling across the floor
The cat scurrying from the room
The shoes tossed under the table.
A man laughing on the radio
the rain falling even harder.
The casserole baking in the oven
my hand scrabbling for the pencil.
This crossword puzzle
What has happened to my eraser?

  1. And always there when you don’t. But when the crossword puzzle gets me in its grip, well, I am focused and don’t even care, I just scrape the pencil extra hard over the mistakes and keep going.
