Idle Pleasures by Dolbster the Poet

Half asleep in the gutter
rats asking “Are you ok?”
whilst squatting on their haunches
like vermin yogis

I watch you, climbing the face
of a distant clock tower
so you can hold hands
with time

still, the gutter is more comfortable
here, with the rats and the roaches
as you scurry
making up lost
seconds.

(C) Dolbster
