Beethoven, Watering the Judgment Fires

The man at the bus stop,
the perfect Blinky-The-Clown,
but with red, curly hair
extending out like fluffy
wings and the smooth bald spot,
not so spiffy in his gray sweats,
bouncing to and fro, left and right,
in a tremendous display of perpetual
motion, and I observe with shocking
alacrity that he is successfully
keeping time with the
ringing my ears
with joy.

      It’s interesting – This came from a dark feeling but it ended up being more humorous than dark and that is just fine!

    I love clowns and I love Beethoven! Very inspiring music the man who became mostly deaf. Thanks for the poetry!
