February 22nd ~ a small stone

Jake pulls cds out and pushes them back in
slide-click, slide-click
stops at Daniel Johnston (Fear Yourself)
takes it off the shelf, opens it
a smiling skull on red
"Happy there," Jake says
flips it closed
a photo of Daniel asleep in a chair
"Not happy there"
Open, giggle
Flip, pause
Open, giggle
Daniel's dishevilled hair
his ample belly
his sleeping face
shut, click.

I really like this. It's just a moment, but there's a lot underneath the sounds and words. Good rhythm, oo.
