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.
