January

Already I am feeling like putting my sweaters away


January is supposedly the coldest month of the year and we’re not even halfway there


while it feels warm as I go on about what I’m supposed to do


the kitten keeps constantly mewing as if it is a tape recorder


And the tape is stuck
At mew.


and so like an automated doll that sings happy birthday to you when you press a little button near its feet
this Kitty keeps mewing on and on
not knowing when to stop.

I finished the first book for the year,

An exuberant narrative of women from all walks of London

Girl,woman, other

And though I haven’t been to London,

Books do exactly that,

Transport me so that I watch these lives unfolding in front of my eyes as if I were Scrooge

Though that’s the only connection I can make.


already I’m feeling like putting my sweaters away.
