Tic tic tic

this morning the sound of persistence
across the patio in the backyard
and up a few feet above the wilting geraniums
tic tic tic
tic tic tic
rhythmic insistent
a small woodpecker
hammering away at the side of the house
reminding me of that old disco song
shake shake shake
shake shake shake
shake your booty
shake your booty
all over
this old house
