A Monday Fib-o-laundry [Fibonacci]

Try
to
focus
on writing
amid the thunder
of high speed washers at full spin.
I don't know which is worse -- the dryers or the musak,
the apathetic personnel
or me -- this woman
attempting
to write
a
poem.

Dancing to the Vielle a Roue

Forced through the flaming hoops 
of yet another medical mandate, 
the corporate monkey 
tucks up her tail 
and cries 
into an empty collection cup.

Surrendering to Twilight

Suspended somewhere 
mesopelagic, 
aware of the catsharks and dragonfishes, 
the coelacanths and firefly squid, 
I gaze down to the abyss 
and feel myself sinking. 

Contemplating the desire to 
develop scale and fin-- 
to dive deeper, 
I'm turned and twisted 
as whalesong bends my bones 
into tuning forks, 
the reverberation 
forcing me to face the light-- 
encouraging me to surface yet again.

Wading Through the Clutter

Trapped in a myriad 
of memory's texture and scent, 
I move objects cautiously 
lest I cause an emotional avalanche. 

A soundless cacophony 
deafens my reason 
as I grope my way past 
stopped clocks and dusty picture frames 
only to beat my wings against 
the bent bars of a gilded bird cage.
