Alert

You awake with a start!
What called you up? Vertical.
Blinking. Catching sight.

What pierced your ears?
Bells? Beeps? Roars?
Brutes closing in?

C A L M …
It pulses also while you sleep.
You are not D I R E C T O R …
But babe in arms.

LINGER

Oliver Ponders

On my finger
Lingers
Bits of food
Explored.

In my ears
Lingers
Motorcycle
Roars.

In my mouth
Lingers
Sweet
Energy.

In my head
Lingers
Lullabies
To soothe.

In my heart
Lingers
Devotion’s
Milk.

Finger lingering good!
