Heavy snow,
I sing
Moon River underneath my breath

and briskly walk
toward the 60 bus I aim to catch--

I miss and wait
an extra 30 minutes
for the next

Quiet room,
I read
the newspaper and gnash my teeth

then pace with broom--
the dustbunnies are givin' me grief

I clean some, decide
there isn't much else
can be done

Open up, open up
to me
Open sesame, Sesame

Pod dweller,
now's your time to draw me in

Late winter
and your root cellar's
empty as my glass has been

I lie awake long enough
to know I will not sleep

Open up,
open up to me
Open sesame, Sesame
