Quiet, Sun!

Twiglets “quiet sun”

In that great cauldron of a sky
the sun boils and burbles
like a thick porridge.
I think of Goldilocks
dipping her spoon into its dense
sludgy matter, taking too quick
a bite and proclaiming “Too hot!”
or maybe Oliver Twist’s piteous
“Please, sir, I want some more.”
Sol being indifference just shrugs
“Beggars can’t be choosers.”
And he and Goldie go away,
hand in hand,
to lament their bad luck.

    I’m always intrigued by the different paths that just a few words can take a person. I think you had great fun with the path you took! Love this to bits.
