I’m down


to see

if I can

write something


surrounded by

red walls


Micael Chadwick paintings

with various books

from philosophy

to poetry to



listening to

the classical station

of which

I am a member

for the


yearly fee

of 90 dollars

and drinking

my preferred

black coffee

in a porcelain mug


and I keep thinking

of Tantalus

head above water


out of reach of

fruits or leaves


hell is sleeping

all day with

nothing to write

the world


out of reach


the monkey sits

on a pile

of stones

and stares

at the open book

in his


say something
