Jean Valjean
No sound of clockstracking the timeat 6:37 the rat scurries across the invisible linehigh up on the leaning fencefrom my corner window I observethis grotesque creature claiming its nameless turfEvery day I twitchwhen I see its tailzig zagging around the traps which seem to have failedmy futile attemptshave become embracedand I’ve surrendered to its swift and rapid raceFor what purpose does my mission achieve?whether it’s dead, alive, or perfectly cleanwhy should I care whether its free to roamthere’s a place for every animal to find their homeShould I call pest control and make a big stinkwarn my friends, have them over for a drinkform an anti-rat neighborhood watch?I wonder if they would care for this as muchIn the meantime I’ve christened this blasted ratwith a familiar name like jean valjeanevery dusk it taunts me and awaits to be seenscuttling across my sideyard wallfor now I’m content and will silence my shoutand watch my little friend scurry aboutat 6:37 across the invisible linelike a clock ticking without a soundtick, tock, tick, tock, shhhhhhhhhhLike a clock ticking without a sound …..
