The whispers from the waiting dust
lingers in a thankful smell
of faded ornamental objects
resting peacefully on shady cloths.
Flabby ghosts of Christmas passed
place foggy kisses of neglect
on rejected jackets.
See — dressed in cobwebs
the open letter of eviction
lays undelivered – still waiting
for the heavy palms
of hopeless sweaty signatures.
And as the door behind you sighs;
you are alone in sullen dusk
when far inside mysterious desks
in frozen somersaults
wait in their malignant menace.
and in the thrill to know your drills
of cleaning out the attic.
Today Gabriella introduces us to the work of Danny Gregory at dVerse who have written several books on drawing and how to change your life with art; he has allowed us to use the images of his Flickr account for today’s prompt. Join us at 3PM EST.
