fancy

i am falling asleep to embers
only i am not falling asleep

i am dry-eyed, dry-throated, dry
the heat steals my water

my son has bad dreams in the next room
tosses and protests
injustice is relative

we have a bed
and an oven
the futon is folded up for sitting
the water runs
the roof holds

we got the fancy guppies at the shop owner's
     recommendation
they are hardy, live long
the snails and plants clean the tank so we don't have to

fish must be different from people because fancy and hardy
     don't go
luxury is relative

HB, I don't know about all that, but thank you!

Thanks MM. I had forgotten about this one. I came across it while cleaning off my c drive. For some reason, I just haven't been very bloggy lately -- much easier to post things that I've already written!

I hear you, winter is a slow blogging time for me too. Everything outside is grey and there isn't much to take pictures of. I have been trying to find interesting things to do but winter makes me want to sit in an armchair and read.
