Too Many Crumbs For a Broom

painting by George Tooker

too many crumbs for a broom

They linger,
still play in the keys,

stick to my fingers
with marmalade.

I sip coffee impulses,
snack between words

that spill to the desk,
litter the lunchroom

in crossword kisses.
I wear my best

alphabet outfit,
see London, see France,

munch and crunch
the sultry dance,

the sideways glance,
the clickety-clack.
