Non sequiturs

The vacuum cleaner is covered with a layer of grime.

*

I carry my empty coffee cup into the kitchen & set it on the counter beside the baby bottles.

*

Halfway through my walk, it hits me: Last night, I was dreaming about witches.

*

The censor of music wears black turtleneck shirts & fancies himself a decomposer.

*

Insomnia is like instant water – add water & serve.

*

I pause in my cleaning to admire the beebalm: scarlet dust mops.

*

Out for an early walk, the rising sun warms my back even as the nighttime coolness still seeps between the buttons of my shirt.

*

I write a note to myself, cross it out & put it in my pocket.

*

Everyone assumes the fry cook likes to cook, but the truth is, she likes to feed people.

*

How long until the baby begins to suspect that the world has other flavors besides formula?

*

I have a feeling I could make a lot out of the fact that the scarlet tanager’s song is so hoarse & formless.

*

I always pause after punching down the dough to admire the imprint of my knuckles on what will soon be bread.

*

Panther amanita or green bolete, a chipmunk has nibbled most of the color off.

*

At three years of age, the asshole’s son is already well on his way to becoming an asshole.

*

Anything with a head of snakes gets compared to Medusa – how tiresome.

*

Is it really just a deerfly that keeps nuzzling the back of my neck?

*

I wonder what the turtles are up to right now?
