Clams Casino -I’m God
[ waiting in anticipation ]
doing the dishes gives her time to think, she may seem like she’s pissed but she’s just focused. She deliberately allows for each day’s selection of used and dirty dishes to encroach more and more on the counter space that is vital for around dinner time. every third or fourth day the purge happens. The memories of dinner guests, and romantic interests get rinsed in the burning hot water that she only leaves run when she is rinsing. Though she may not be directly saving the whales, dolphins, fishes(yeah i know), guppies or sea life in general, she is conscious of the amount that could be wasted if it were to be left running throughout her entire lavender scented meditation. The hot water reminds her to keep moving. The music she chooses usually reflect her mood. The neighbors have learned to adjust. They are well aware that the volume that rattles their chandelier is accompanied by the pounding of her feet as she dances in transition from pots to plates, then from plates to cups, and last cups to utensils. An encore track is saved for the wiped down of the counters. The kitchen spotless, she reaches for a cig, pours a small glass of bourbon, two cubes(sometimes neat), it doesn’t really matter what time of day, it’s part of the process. // His news delayed work for about an hour. His conversation gripped the wheel at ten and two, there was no room for pulling over. The young man only hoped that his ears were what the other needed. All will be fine. All will be. // Popcorn and tuna salad for dinner.
