the possum won’t be sated

the evening started with a storm
the rain has dissipated
i set aside a bowl of fruit
the possum won’t be sated
i set aside a plate of nuts
that crazy squirrel ate it
i set aside some pumpkin pietrichosurus_vulpecula_3-possum
the possum won’t be sated
what is it he’s looking for
why is he so angry
i try to ask him what he wants
at first he stares back blankly
then he charges at me
like a rabid, rapid bear
and i am in the window now
watching him from there
i think he thinks he owns my yard
from sunset to sunrise
perhaps a formal time-share contract
wouldn’t be unwise
now i’m playing music
in an effort to sedate it
bach brahms mozart strauss
the possum won’t be sated
