V:044 crickets on my mind




- an annual tradition: fretting over indoor crickets -

autumn equinox –
awakening
to summer’s last cricket

. . . Nisqually Delta Review (summer/fall issue 2006; Editor’s Choice)

breakfast alone
except for that cricket
behind the fridge

.. The Heron’s Nest (Vol. X, No. 4, December 2008)

from the shower
a sad love song -
bathtub cricket


clearing out
spider webs –
again, I spare the cricket



something I said?
the cricket’s
gone, too


bathtub cricket,
where do you go
while I shower?

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . previously seen at f/k/a (2005 - 2008)

p.s. "Frasier" used a gecko to take care of his
cricket problem. Roberta Beary consulted the
Washington Post's John Kelly and suggests duct tape.

the cricket song and its mythology, head to an
informative piece at Wikipedia.

Hi, Dalloway. Thanks. Sorry it took me so long to see you had left a comment.

I hope you're enjoying your move into Spring, as we face dying leaves and emigrant crickets.
