Mouse Trap

It is Fall in the Adirondacks.
The mice are looking to settle in.
I set & reset the mouse trap,
watch late night movies,
and wait for the next muffled snap.

The house is too old
to plug all the holes
and keep the mice out.
So I set & reset the traps,
and settle into this grim vigil.

  1. do you ever feel like a mouse caught in a maze instead of a trap.
