I went for a walk… and really paid attention.
I saw a wild rabbit in a vacant city lot, and was mesmerized by how quickly it chewed. Those tiny rabbit jaws are like lightning! And even with all that turbo-speed whizzing in the middle of their face, their eyes’ stay fixed and open. Those big rabbit eyes are as steady as a brick house. I was completely fascinated by the quick-still contrast of the rabbit…
…until I saw velvet sapphire swaying in a flower box. It made me want to sway with it. Shimmy and flitter. In cobalt suede floral glory.
I got home and convinced my boyfriend to watch “Lord of the Rings” with me. I asked him, “Baby, if I built a Hobbit House, would you live in it with me?”
“Hobbit House, igloo, shoe-box” he answered, “I’ll live with you wherever.”
