Sunday night

Well, the hallway painting didn’t get finished today, but the last coat is going to go on early tomorrow morning, right after I drop my car off at the shop. I did manage to catch the tail end of the Oscars, after completely forgetting about them (does this somehow make me not a real American?) but the second half of my day was not very productive. So for now, some Raymond Carver, ala Lisa Congdon.

Sunday night
Make use of the things around you.
This light rain
Outside the window, for one.
This cigarette between my fingers,
These feet on the couch.
The faint sound of rock-and-roll,
The red Ferrari in my head.
The woman bumping
Drunkenly around in the kitchen . . .
Put it all in,
Make use.
