A Fan

The darkness fades to grey and the first bird stirs


The fan spins relentlessly  and the man wakes


Listens


Wishes for an answer as the birds speak of the wonder of a new day


He lights his cigarette and the smoke curls


Like the fan  his mind spins


He tries to capture a thought but it has moved on


He draws on the cigarette listening to the dawn


Wishes for coffee and embraces the melody


The crow has woke and caws for something


The emptiness won't leave nor the birds


He decides to make his way to the coffee


The aches of sleep and age slowly depart but the spinning keeps


When will his mind stop its uneasy endless wandering


Will two plus two always be four or someday become five


Will He remember what He just wrote in a minute


In a minute will He remember


Will you love Him when he forgets your name
