and


they are building this house half a block down
and i stand there at night
and inside i can see cats walking
the way cats walk
and the ribs of the house show
and something seems not right
and i look through this house
and it seems the house does not want to be built
through its sides i can see the hills turn purple
and it is cold
and i button my coat
and it seems people should not build houses anymore
and it seems people should not
brush their teeth, comb their hair, get in their cars
and i am tired
and it seems there is a lot to forget
and a lot not to do
and i stand there looking through the house
and the cats stop and look at me
until i am embarrased
and move north up the sidewalk

Please don't tell me we BOTH wore our old Zara cord flares this week on the blog?

How funny is that? I got mine years ago in 2 or 3 diff colours (love em that much).

Hope you and the little one are doing well.
