OctPoWriMo Day 11 – Profound mutterings

Profound mutterings from the muse

Pity that I don’t acquiesce well

As she dribbles and moans on cues

I just shrug and ruffle the belle

Inevitably I listen

She stops her bawling and glistens

We’re really good friends she and I

We lament when we’re sad and cry*
