Tuesday morning again. It always seems to come. The babies are coughing, doctor in the afternoon.
Find a hammer. Do all the chores that need a hammer. Fix the curtain rod. Pound a loose nail.
If I had twenty minutes I would pull the dried peas out of the garden. I would water the plants. Pick flowers.
Find a pen. Do all the chores that need a pen. Thank you notes. Bills. Make a list of things to do.
If I had twenty minutes I would piece together a picture of fabric. Black and white and red. Like I am thinking of you. Right angles and spirals. Black and white.
Turn the computer on. Do all the chores that require a computer. Check email. Reply to friends. Waste time.
If I had twenty minutes I would tell the birds stories that would make them grow teeth to bite the stones from cherries.
