Like a giant shield
it guards private minutes
with the zeal of a shining knight
and the unmoving stare of a statue.
If you have a door, that is.
You hardly pay any mind to
the steadfast open/close
and take for granted the solid plank of wood
Jim Morrison managed to immortalize.
A five-lettered noun of dissonant reassurance,
that begins and ends at the sound of a click
or bang, if you ask for it.
The numbers came flowing in this week, mostly in the negative. I rummaged through my adolescent physics binder and came across this familiar formula:
disappointment + lack of motivation = major deflation
Any angst-ridden teenager is familiar with this bleak aspect of things, but let me tell you, at 25+1 major deflation sets in quite comfortably. But I’m going ahead of myself. It’s Monday so let’s get down to the Math, shall we?
Straight out of Beverly Hills, it seems
A special surprise
- 5 wasps located inside our balcony rail. How? Well part of it had rusted and so they sneaked in and were making a nest. Spotted them today and freaked out! I would have had a photo for this, if I weren’t too scared to go near the place.
- 10 bottle caps saved for a special project I’m working on. Soon to be revealed, hopefully.
I have this exact same door in a watercolor painting I bought 2 years ago. I wonder if it's from Chania originally.
