In The Dinosaur Room



*

This was one of the glorious ones...


*

The sun rose and dragged a brilliant, clear blue sky up behind it. We spent the day digging in the wet dirt, weeding and planting in the garden. We went to Miner's Ace Hardware and bought sweetpea and morning glory and forget-me-not seeds, and a Spanish lavender plant. We bought Johnny-jump-ups and daisys and snapdragons and potting soil at the Cambria Nursery.

We ate garden burgers and chips on the back deck in the dappled shade under the Japanese Maple.

We got hot and bothered.

We went to All American Video and got "The Whale and The Squid" and "Capote."

I slept in our bed in the afternoon, exhausted and a little drunk.

Now Yolie is making her vegan cookies and some Brocoli-rabe and garlic pasta and positively glowing with beauty. My god, if I ever lost her you'd know about it. You'd read about it in the papers. You'd be able to see it from space. I must be something incredible because I know she loves me bad.

Oh, yeah. We cut about a hundred Calla lillys from the side yard and brought them into the house. They're standing up in vases in every room, white throated and green legged and yellow stamened and bold, sexy motherfuckers.


*

If I have to pay for this much pleasure I'll do it with a smile on my face.

I hope your day was every bit as sweet...

My day was kinda sweet, but not that sweet. I love how you describe your love for your wife and her love for you.

Well, not everyone can describe how much a fussy shirt does for their self image.

Ha.

Thanks for coming by. You lend some much needed class to the joint.

Urgency, persistency, the front side of desire!

Methinks Louise Gluck, by contrast, hits it from the back a little too often.

But she's older than me (a little).

We have one struggling mini-rose on the back deck, but a huge field beyond it.
