has a Magic Eraser
wipes oil abandoned by former tenants
but i wonder–where?
does it all go?
matter never created nor destroyed
human grease morphs, atoms shift
someplace skids are waxed
algebraic units bounce across equal signs
negative signs hitched
on their hips
fat babies gurgling for milk
alchemy removes what harsh
chemicals and words
Bureau matron hen screech
“what’s wrong with you?!?”
Indian left behind
Affairs rubbed away
spit on a thumb
microscopic ink rolled with epithelial cells
from a brown-pink palm
Today I signed up to be a bell ringer at Woodman’s East. You know there are TONS of shifts that are still needed in Madison. It’s super easy to volunteer for a time slot that is probably really close to where you live or work. Check it out at www.ringbells.org I am not saying that I am a soldier in the Salvation Army however I do think that it is one of the most recognized charities out there and probably gets a big bundle of money for the needy–at least during the holidays. Anyway, I am going to be there tomorrow from 2-4 at Woodman’s East. Stop by and see me.
After I see how that goes I may sign up for most slots. Maybe next week. Yeah.
Went shopping yesterday and got lots of soft foods. Maybe I am starting to get a tad bit nostalogic about my wisdom teeth. “But Mommy do they HAVE to go?” Yes dear, it is their time.
