honest work

i was gone all day, and my feet hurt.

i folded tee shirts, was confused with socks,

tried to be good, got it all wrong.

what did you do, bear.

‘i stayed here all day, i don’t want the money’

‘why have you not shared that one

about belief ?’

‘did anyone read it?’

i don’t know.

the bear slipped back to sleep

holding the rags.

deepest forests

you know how you can hear me,

when i am thinking. ‘yes that is because

i came from the forest, it is quiet there,

we can hear everything’

yes.

‘where have you been all day?’

here and there and felt the air

on my cheeks.

‘ so i hope the blanket of sadness

is lifting?’

yes. thank you bear.

pronounce quietly

the bear looked puzzled, sat back and said,

‘told you, no one will listen if we are quiet,

they have all lost interest’

yes.

‘do they only listen to loud folk , those that shout

and remonstrate’

seems so.

‘do you mind’ said that bear sympathetically.

no.

have you written any thing today?

no, not much.

what has happened

today.

if you stop writing

about me , will i

no one will notice us,

any more?

the bear considered, thought

it may be nice.
