Bouts With Vertigo
October 30, 2011 § 2 Comments
The fishmonger had neglected to mention
His occasional bouts with vertigo.
Running up the narrow steps,
He bumped into the calligrapher
Who was rapidly crawling around,
Looking for a pair of socks.
They both forgot about their rehearsal,
Until, through the attic window,
They saw the tightropes stretched across the alley.
