Capturing Tom


Tom! Stay but a
moment!
Leap not from
my racing pen!

I scratch my
marks upon
my parchment,
seeking Tom’s
essence.
But he is too
canny for
me!

Determined to
remain the
mystery —
Door into
mystery?
I have heard
that notion…

Is he the
moment I almost
catch from the
corner of my
eye?
Is his the
music my
dreams
dance to…
fading with
morning’s
light?

Does he direct
Coyote in
gentle
mischief and
accidental
assistance?

Tom! Stop!
Stay with me a
moment that
I may learn
your mystery…
