Satisfaction

SATISFACTION
Satisfaction comes slowly,
Creeping on soft paws
As a jewel-eyed, gentle creature,
Or sometimes as a ravenous beast
Whose teeth reflect the moonlight
Of a nocturnal world.

An imbalanced calendar
Reincarnates only days of sameness,
Nights of lonely minds and rooms.
The rare intrusion of interest
Is a welcome animal—
Much better if untamed.
