write off


clumps of hairballs

the grease-string of champs


the phone calls,

the wing-in,

the bone

fried goodness

whether Parmesan or Hawaiian


the finicky jump from

A to B

and cancelled appointments

(to relax one’s evening)

phone calls dropping mid-conversation


the hoarding of food

to consume one’s worry away

the eagerness of bed,

“Remember the Name” on replay


the sickness that could readily well take over lives


stomach virus

the flu

and breath vaporizers –

oh my,


the inhale, exhale

of cinnamon

vanilla buns


the kolache jalapeno –

truly meat is the Chosen One,


weekends that

for better or worse

end up as they may

and generic cheese crackers

with Dr. Pepper to end the day
