magic little pudgy fingers and a stretch neck inside a carrying case

19 Nov

it leans on nothing
sits quiet and anonymous
like a geisha fan sleeping
until someone picks it up
and saddles their body in poncho.
expanding contracting expanding

squeeze and hug
heave and ho
song and dance
more and more
dear accordion

      But does he ride the accordion or does it ride him?

      Thanks Millie. It’s an effective remedy for sleep, this life thing. I think rather than counting sheep, I’ll meditate on the sleeping accordion next time or come to think of it, even when it’s being played it sort of looks like snoring, in an exaggerated cartoonish sort of way.

        Effective remedy for lack of sleep I should say with the cartoons an effective segway into dreams.
