.precious.

hope the car goes along ok, mine
goes in monday. offered a lift back

from the garage, yet after so many

years sorting things alone am happy
to walk home

only a couple of miles and i think
of the things i may see if i look
slow

i feel i talked too much yesterday
and know from experience it will
be understood differently than how

it was meant

there was a severe overdose of chandeliers
at the imperial hotel and i felt quite light
headed with all the glittering

do you know in 1926 the year of the general
strike the hotel gave visitors a gift
a travel clock, spendid

today quite breathless with the cat sleeping
in on the bed

an unusual mistake not to be repeated
