The Tomato-coloured Couch 2:00pm

Today I watched

a Universe drift through

My House — It started —

if I can use that phrase —

under a table in The Living Room

which displays The Heads of Hunter & Rudy*

and when I opened the front door

to let a cat in

(She changed Her Mind)

The Universe swept Its Self through

My Dining Room

and into The Kitchen

to roll to a stop

helices intact

string theories in place

at My Grandmother’s wrought iron chair

where I sit

to look out


*Rudy died on Tuesday, April 26th.  He never got to see the sculpture.
