Percussion

Listening to
The dryer
Percuss
Except
Its a memory
Of a very regular
Day with you

I don’t remember
What was in the load
But I remember
We played
Board games
To pass the time

The bats squeak
We seldom see them
They are not the
Vampires they’re
Made out to be

Vampires live
Amongst us
Not hidden
In houses

When the
Machine
Buzzes
After the bats
Dry clothes

More plays
Tactile
Textile
Memories
