Next in the Ongoing Poem Series About the Winter of 2006

February 23, 2006
Oh I forgot to mention

On Monday the tall cloud shapes I saw in the morning
were still there when I left work
but lit up all pale peachy pink
and glowing from within

Last night I bought myself a new bedside water carafe
much heavier and more globular than my last one which broke
The heft in the hand is especially satisfying

Since I turned thirty I seem to be enjoying
more and more old-lady-ish pleasures
the water carafe
the hot water bottle
can lined drawers and flamboyant reading glasses be far behind?
Do I care?
