The female of the species signals her readiness by removing her pants in the kitchen
So after a little extended family unpleasantness
Or is that extended extended-family unpleasantness?
Valentines Day was quite nice.
The boyos in bed early.
An orchid, chocolate, champagne.
I don’t know who these women are,
The ones who complain about receiving the above three every year.
I guess I’m easy
I dreamed peaceful dreams,
Dewdrops scattered like stars across my childhood lawn,
Clustered in the leafless maple branches outside my old window.
Tasting a dollop of crème fraishe flavored with
Honey and rum
Atop a slice of chocolate mousse cake.
Walking in the woods, smelling of resin and wet earth,
Toward a lighted window.
I awoke refreshed this morning.
There’s just enough champagne left
To make a nice risotto
Which I shall do tonight.
