kitten snuggle love up to thigh
stereo tubes tinkling settling ebbing
pre Christmas cactus blooms waning
(early pink upstarts fading on limbs)
avocado chip fingers sliding on keyboard
tasty tasty tasty
recollections of near miss wipeouts/icy sidewalks/Marx bros. composure
Sunday's freezing rain come Monday
talks in Durban balks in Durban time for serious time outs
time for change in Durban
approaching the eleventh hour of the eleventh month
in the year of eleven

all saints

a reprieve for geraniums
live to live another day
ebbing sun
fading lipstick blooms
another night
another day
crimson kisses
mountain ashfall
another night
another day
