we traveled above the clouds
but not in denver
so i can’t blame the altitude
and the temperature is quite comfortable
so i can’t blame the heat
dry or otherwise.
and i have a lot to do,
but none of it is here with me
my cell phone doesn’t work here
and we don’t really know that many people here
or belong to any clubs or organizations
so there are no social obligations requiring my time and attention.
so as far as i can tell
i have no excuse
no discernible, easily recognizable reason
for running on empty
coughing up dust
i’ve got nothing
nothing, i tell you.
i’m trying to finish up a couple of pieces
but can’t quite get theref
can’t get to that satisfying “yes”.
the proverbial light
down into the depths of the proverbial well.
even though the words lack oomph.
though the result is a foreign language.
who knows why this sometimes happen
times when you can’t buy a creative idea?
thank goodness our scarlett was right:
tomorrow is indeed another day.
and maybe tomorrow
i’ll just whip me up a beautiful fitted
from some curtains.
we have no curtains.
another one bites the dust.
see what i mean?
guess there’s nothing to do
but go have some ice cream.
using the biggest spoon i can find.
that should do it.
