Sometimes left, mirror right or something

This morning time pocketed itself towards an early start button. A chunk of at least 6 hours unaccountable for. I know this because as eye flung open, window -other side – sound; body made way, same time as the other door. Moving twos. It is scene something, something a rather. Body language with keratin accents.

Just before the bell encrusted, change room drama was left. A couple days before. Hair started parting itself to the left, sometimes. For how many years middle part cherished an unfortunate cow lick. Somehow flattened a way path, trodden occasionally by sharp talons. Now this. I come to realize that hair fall out is due to poisoned water, and perhaps having one side with a fuller complexion, amounts to more than two limp counterparts trying to tuck themselves behind ears.

      Oh golly, that sounds interesting. Surley not too green I’d imagine

      Thanks Shey, at the time far from metaphor, currently- now, slightly more so

  2. insanity or genius? I gotta quit reading the comments, now about singing and cucumber offerings…sometimes life is that way. 🙂 as for water, I swear New Orleans heated water is much worse than unheated too. 😐

      Hey Robert. Yeah, not sure about either of those words but maybe we could create something between like, Insanious or, genity?

      Yes the munchkins are that way. It is the age too.

      Water is so important, and we are running low on good stuff. But in comparison to many places, less well off, I cannot even complain and feel like such a princess doing so, but…
