plumbing issues

loud splash in the middle of the night awakens me
and i know it for a cat falling into the tub
where the water is slowly, slowly draining
i go back to sleep
and my dreaming picks up the theme;
Tille walks out of the bathroom at the store, 
trying to dry off after having fallen
in the water. I cry out, "oh no, girl! now what happened?"

left turn

even when sitting in a vehicle
waiting for the traffic light's change to green
there is beauty come unexpected, and delightful
sunlight glints on petals wind-rolled, dancing
through the intersection

a Book & many Beers...

Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake, a re-read for me, last read in 1975. The libations: "Falco" from Evil Twin Brewing, "Mosaic" from Terrapin Beer Company and "Weez" from the Maine Beer Company.

the setting Moon fades
 in the Western sky
paled out
by the light of the
Vernal Equinox

Utopia

During one of my high school English Lit classes, the teacher assigned us a paper detailing our concept of a Utopian Society. Mine was the ONLY one in the entire class that did not involve a police state of some sort. I was laughed at in the class.

dream

I am walking down a neighborhood street, and as i am about to cross over a larger street, i hear Lorraine calling out to me. i turn to look at her, and begin to walk toward her when she tells me to look out. a white van is pulling into the intersection right at me. i move over, and as he (white male) drives past me he says something derogatory. i just snort a laugh and walk over to Lorraine. we are greeting each other in the middle of the road, so we walk together up the sidewalk and across the road to the other side of the street. she wants to show me her place. when we get there, she shows me the landscaping setup she has done at the sidewalk. it's very cute! she has named one of her plants (a female name) and introduces me. a neighbor and her son walk by on the sidewalk, and we laugh, introducing them to the plant. as we move aside to allow them to pass, the plant gets jostled, and as we reset the plant in it's place we joke about that.
