Now that it’s chilly inside,
with lackluster I
vacuum the stairs
in my winter coat
in lieu of letting you see
why I must leave you
in steps of one through three. Ah me!

If, if you please,
prettily grant to me
serenity to escape these things
I cannot paint;
with no medium to change
the things I can,
and to an honest man.

I might want to say,
“a smile gets you no place”.
Were I a pin-up
in a tea-cup, I’d straightaway
pour a few sweet drops of victory
straight into my soliloquy.

Wishing wily while I still vacuum the stairs.
Ah me!
