Observation - January 3rd, 2018, Wednesday


The radiators here do not clang and bang

They are filled with hot water, not steam

I hear the flow in a low pitched rush

As the boilers work to beat the cold

Air seeping through the window sills

Kitty is curled up in her blue blanket

Head in paws, on her stuffed gray chair

The quiet is broken intermittently

By the sound of the neighbors toilet

Jennifer is tossing in her sleep, coughing

She has been struck by a January virus
