Cecil sweeps

Cecil sweeps

with vigor

and purpose-

no dust bunny  is safe,

nor dragon,

nor passerby.

He will likely not meet your eye unless invited.

Say hello Cecil.

Hello Cecil.

Cecil channels energy,

tai chi,

he says.

He is always courteous,


adroitly making his way.

He sometimes smiles wryly-

the humor of the situation amuses him. He gets it.

We are all Supreme Beings, Cecil,

channeling chi,

observers of comings and goings,

learning new rules with humor and grace,

striving for balance,

heroically wielding our brooms against

the bloody dragons.
