Back in the Heartland


Obscenely early:
Wake up.

Ten:
Zumba with mother-in-law.

Noon:
Tie baby to antique highchair with dishrag;
feed her squash and blueberries.

Two:
Stop by great-grandmother's house
to listen to tale of man
whose eyeball was hanging out of the socket.

Four:
Baby gets mesmerized by "Thriller" on the television.

Four o' five:
Baby squawks at Billie Jean.

Four ten:
Baby crawls(!!!) to Elmo.

Six:
Baby is fed
(smelling of apples, apricots, brown rice).
Baby to bed.

Now:
Eat ribs.
