i’ve had this shoulder ache

since childhood. since watching

the olympics from a bunk-bed.

one woman said i’ve just come

to get my umbrella & two men

said we’ve just come to do

a bit of sanding, this in one day.

i fumbled with two sets of keys

from the right pocket, then,

two keys from the same ring

that appear similar. the clouds

sometimes look purplish with snow,

like now, but it never  snows here.

there’s olive trees everywhere.

apparently you can pickle them,

but i haven’t. reheated pasta &

orange & mango juice for lunch.

the car seems to be running

smoothly after topping the oil.

no notifications. wait.

the sanding men,

that was yesterday.

how have you been.
