Three Smart Mice

We had to work with phrases again. Today's phrase was "Three smart mice woke me up this morning."

three smart mice

three smart mice
woke me up
this morning.

little voices
creeping in
my ears, merged
with my thoughts,
around my
guilts and doubts,
stole my motives,
purloined my
urgent reasons.

today I will
read, half-dazed,
eat apple cake
(with lots of
crumbs), wander
in a haze-

today I will
live simply
in a warm
room, feet up,
sleep early,
dream of
careless love.
