I’m feeling depressed

just not somehow right tonight

you might say I’m flipping stressed

and my mind is slipping down a hill, in a running shadow fight

it whirls, turns, looks here and there

then stops suddenly to simply sit and stare

as though in a trance while but in complete confusion

focused on nothing but trapped in a total profusion

of odd thoughts springing up to join and meet

bouncing off one another not stopping to simply greet

no conversation started, opened, made then finished

a friend left and drove north tonight

family, dogs, all gone from the neighbor’s sight

ah, they forgot to turn out a light

tv programs in homes unfiltered running

as usual remarkably stupidly stunning

so I’ll walk the dogs and duck rain drops

and hope the cold breeze rushing past momentarily stops

until I get the simple task completed done

then sleep I will and wake I hope to once more view the morning sun.
