"Looney Tunes" - Gregory de Rocher




"Looney Tunes" - Gregory de Rocher

 

Every morning

         I start the day

                  the same way

 

Preparing breakfast

         for my spouse of fifty years

                  when from an even deeper past

 

Up comes gurgling

         from depths unfathomable

                  an ear worm from the Fifties

 

Whole songs I’d thought forgotten

         undecompose and play!

                  Melody and lyrics

 

I could never remember

         if I were pressed

                  now come uninvited

 

And replay and replay and replay

         over and over and over

                  like a mad merry-go-round

 

Those tunes that had accompanied

         the fantasies and the deeds

                  of my now unforgotten yesterdays.
