road plan haiku
this plan gives me pause
some things better on paper
may not go as planned.
“the middle of the road is where the white line is – and that’s the worst place to drive.”
olive the cat not the oil
cooly waits beneath the tree
acting as though she has not even noticed
this new 6-foot thing in our living room
with lots of moving and dangling and twirling things on it
after i put it all up and walk away
she plans out her next day of play
knowing that i’ll be leaving for school
early in the morning.
“the cat is, above all things, a dramatist. ”
