web in the window
fashioned by some spider
to catch the circling hours 
 

light     shade
this turning globe turning 
 

both hands straight up
the cuckoo dances about
as if time matters 
 

sing sing sing *
the drums the drums
don't they ever stop 
 

hurricane surf
in slow-motion footage 
 

deployed around
the night-lite - two moths
at 23:20 hours 


 

* "Sing, Sing, Sing":  Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall performance, Gene
Krupa on drums.
