letter from portugal
every dark morning at an hour fit only for cats and the walking dead i am assaulted by the mindless braying of a jackass heehawing as if its purpose in life is to awaken the sun
a nightbird since birth i've closed my eyes perhaps three hours earlier and am in no fit shape to greet another day
but there is nothing to be done this animal the pet of the neighborhood cannot be silenced
somehow the owners of this pensao tranquila no bairro rustico forgot to mention their donkey and the blocks of flats adjacent to the postagestamp plot of greensward where unsuspecting guests are housed
and so here in this land of sun and wine what was meant to be my rejuvenation has become a prison of exhaustion a reminder that bestlaid plans are often wisps of smoke scattered by prevailing winds ~ copyright 2016 RC deWinter
