Seven Times #71: Gerbil on a wheel


 

Grayness of the sky and of the mind
Black belt of prosperity in a white karate gi

A solitary mulberry tree guyed to the ground by the riverside
A swing with Godchildren playing in its shade

Gimcracks and gewgaws
Flash from the center of the rotary

Swept up instant sweepstakes
Giveaways in your ear
As you run the gauntlet
A golden gerbil on a silver wheel
