a break

debby sou

this morning
the cuckoo refuses to get up
one hour late for its task
loudly it declares
day off! day off!
and away it goes

grab its tail
and paint a rainbow
slowly we stroll on the seven colours
no need to hurry

the dusty electric wires at dawn
a red sun hung above
on the ground purple shadows of men
tired faces
no one cares to claim

a bird
singing all day on the branches
a cat
dozing under the tree
no mood to chase for chasing’s sake

take a break
it says
and falls back to its sleep
