Things grow best
over bones--
flowers bloom
upon a grave.

There is a trick--
a twist of wrist--
how deep a hole
will hold your own?

somehow, the lack of reply here---seems appropriate...

smiling,

who tends the grave of the sextant?

*yep, I'm having another long nite, folks...*

(serenity curtseys deeply, eyes closed in pretend, playing to empty seats...)


WAIT....

(serenity enters again, to sing, acapella..."

"Can't you see the look at me
That I'm a natural Camille?
As Camille I just feel
I have so much to offer
I know I'll be divine because
I'm a natural cougher..."

--"I'm The Greatest Star"
lyrics by Bob Merrill

(now...serenity grabs the mop and pail, and dances with dust, exit, stage right...)

hey...somebody's gotta tend the graves.

There is always the chance when here in the quiet of the haven that we end up talking to ourselves...

Ha ha ha! So it's not just me?

Loved the gentle curve and solid ache here, Sen. (reminds me of my "Lay my bones in flowers")
