I think not, although that may depend On being allowed to bath at all, Given the absense of recent rainfall: A peculiar sense of deja nada Making things seem that much harder, Doesn’t this happen too frequently Or is that just my memory…?

Sendentary Saturday*

Ah, the delights of Saturday morning:* No alarms, just slothful yawning, Radio on in constant conversation, Concealing the inevitable cognitive vacation… Elicitng a Cocktail Party Effect That contributes nothing to my intellect, (In truth, already wholly diverted By stuff on the ‘net so blatantly asserted, Somehow knowing, without my consent, There’s money somewhere, just waiting […]
