Living like vampires

drapes closed

leftover lunacy

shrimp stir-fry with peanut sauce

rotisserie chicken noodle soup

chocolate chip pancakes afternoon and morning

does Thich Nhat Hanh mindfully lick the butter from the edge of zen?

paint and a six-year-old’s bodily functions

making mazes with earwax traps, eyeballs, ‘bergers’

rubber duck races in the bathtub

allergic reaction to dishes, laundry

superhero squad

poems, peeps yellowed by the sun or some other substance

make a movie

document the construction of a planned vacation

undone by contracts, taxes and a runny nose

Celebrate this quiet mind

plugged into what matters

and frivolity

touch tap the moment when home becomes adventure

obstacle course

Easter eggs balanced on spoons

citrus tucked under chins

comforters on the couch
