I’ve been reading and writing ____,
trying to work it out with the flock,
understand what it all means, but
here I find myself a few hours later,
starting over against the carpet,
removing my shoes before
sinking into the tub.   It’s
all the same, exercise for

having to lift ourselves
into the _____.


Let’s start over against the
carpet.   Why eat for break-
fast what you already have

our shoes before sinking
into the tub and then,
no longer stanky,
collapse our toes
into a net that traps
all of the important
ingredients for the
most creative
______ of all.

Give him up
entirely!   My
_____, which
is now
altogether
too _____.
