17:30 Melody


The salty morsale dives down

With echoed fractures

Closely followed by

The bag crumpling again.

Beep! Beep! Bee-beep!

Our alarm system calls out

Indicating an airy guest

His howl thrashing

The flora outside.

Ding-Ding! Power Rangers! Ding! Mega force! Dong!

Muffled sounds of FuturRangers intermingle

A rebellious, lost teen and

An innocent, whimsical youth

Fight for top sound in the living room

While I sit here listening to the melody playing

Crunch! Crinkle! Bee-Beep! Dong! Whoosh! Rangers!

Just another day after school .
