.83.

do you remember  mine shook too then broke in half?

what a day yesterday soaked through i turned early with

the thought that the otter may be at the bridge

then i saw the swimmer

in black gear with goggles

as you do

he did

swim lovely

so i watched him in the rain

returned home to find a visitor by the door his tongue

probing for insects and such a good shot. we chatted

him in his khaki skin coat, me in my wet jacket

my groceries came later

stephen brought them

the store

makes sure

we know their names

and all polite

then at last i saw one of my family

who works less than the permitted

distance now

called by

one of the tribe

like minded

he will like a bike too james

what is ground beef james though

i am vegetarian

one of that tribe

james

while some cannot breathe
