Living Room

Home to pierogi and pickled beets and listening at the piano to Happy Train, something the kid has come up with. The Christmas tree is still up and drinking. Invisible spiders decorate between the pine bristles and soft green tufts grow from the tips of branches. The cat rolls her back on Jungle Animals Illustrated. The kid�s left hand rumbles the upright and her right hand spreads long open chords. She turns her face to me as each chord rings and smiles like a midget saloon entertainer looking for tips.
