Telling: Streams & Logs

10 Things


  1. Fly body, belly up, on the seat of my chair where I have been sitting since before light.
  2. Lou-Lou refusing to come in to eat, lying on the porch beside the bowl I set out for her, sphinxing.
  3. The stickiness on the floor around the trashcan where I spilled the balsamic glaze cleanup water last night.
  4. The smell of stain remover on my splashed shirt waiting.
  5. The abrasion of being awake.
  6. Out the door, the smell of burning.
  7. Dog vomit on the carpet, again.
  8. Mosquito kisses at my desk.
  9. Showering in the dark.
  10. Climbing the stairs to the very top.
