it changes every day.

Standard

(a highly-compensated re-enactor above,

showing my expression and hair at sign-in)

while signing-in at the salon

i asked the receptionist

what the date was

to which she replied, 

“oh, let me look. it changes every day. this keeps happening.”

(not ironically)

i nodded in agreement and finished signing in.

compassion.

Standard

sweet kinder

creates a beautiful and comfortable bed

for the rhino with the broken foot

so that he has a place to lie down

and recover in peace.

“as great scientists have said and as all children know,

it is above all by the imagination

that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope.”
