Daedalus Inspired

He always carries a pocketful of rocks. Gathered at the garden’s edge, they either protect from roaming mutts or prevent him from flying off. Despite the weight, he is still light of foot. Whisper walking through alleys and along thoroughfares, but stopping often. To visit with fellow writers. To greet children. To compliment the grubbiest servant. And after a drink or two, he will dance. Sing. Recite.

night composing
the candle wax drips
into each poem
