Today Eye Got Up

@ 4:30 2 put the cats out

(Eye have successfully gotten rid

of their cat box)

Made My Decaf

and instead of dancing

went back to bed

2 have The Dream

of trying 2 get Eva out

of the nursing home

She was put in by Her Children

2 die and not 2 live —

Eye said 2 Her

“Don’t have a heart attack –“

as Eye hoisted Her up

and onto My Shoulder
