Instead of revising chapter VI,

I am staring at an
Outrageous poppy
Which is the perfect shade of orange,
dusted with black pollen and ruffled like a hippie girl’s skirt,
twirling out of the narrow neck of a blue glass bottle
which is, of course, the ideal shade of translucent cornflower blue

the door is slightly open
and the sound of falling water repeats
itself
a lazy june breeze keeps the leaves in motion in the yard
under Grey skies so bright they make the back of my eyes ache

Grandma and Grandpa have the baby
And now that I’m not constrained to writing in his naptime
I am unhinged
