mice in movies

lyrics

the mouse
that crawled across
the kitchen floor
must be blind
he's not
articulate
or graceful as in
a film

i must
not look so tall
across the fathoms
of tile
if he
could hear me breathe
would he raise his nose
to me?

my friend mouse friend
growing big on barefoot sweepings
what else could he be eating?

he wandered out from under the fridge
giggling just like a child
what else could he be watching?

an accidental offering of broccoli upon the floor
has escaped his attention
what else could he be wanting?

he disappeared under the fridge
and we haven't seen him again
where else could he be going?

you are
full of my ghost
to feel so alone
with me
could i
keep you a home
in a jar below
the stove?

friendship is
simple
one waits one
welcomed
