This Week’s Projects

I’m getting old. My feet are getting numb.

That’s worrisome.

I have a yard. There is a short fence.

The prickly pear is all falling over. The ice storm, this time.

I have to haul it off to the curb. Or else it will rot and smell bad.

My neighbors don’t like me. 

I have stories about them.

I am surrounded by hate.

I tried.

I love nonhuman life.

Not allowed.

Only hate.

Now I am reduced to small things
And vague hopes of escape.

No such luck, old woman
Stuck here as you are
Silly loser.

    Looks like quite a heavy project. I’m hoping your blog is cathartic for you.

      Thanks. The Internet is good for venting, sometimes too good…spring is on the way down here and I need to get to work!

      Also, I really like your blog. I think you’re doing a really nice thing there, kind of like group therapy but safer. I think you do an excellent job of interacting without getting anywhere even close to intrusive. I’m a little in awe of you. You’d make a great role model.
