i am in a dreamless dream
everything is and has happened
but i'm too frozen to get involved--
raise my hand
the cat escaped again,
he plays in the grass, just getting some air
roommate complains
my head aches.
forcing out of the house in fury
i found furry friend under porch--
he thinks he might be captain ahab. perhaps.
finally he comes back and agrees to come inside.
i am disinterested
his body is curled like a conch shell next to me
i think he wants to be forgiven
i scold him
and now he is like sleeping peace
and i am learning to tell stories in a writer's language.
