Journal Entry October 22nd, 2014: I’m not expressing myself well today. This ink is bugging me – it’s too strong and all wrong for my mood. I remember I purchased it to write up a condolence card.
This insightful poem is from a series I wrote called: “Eat the Whole Bag”. It was written well before K.A.’s end came, in the sad form of Divorce, and a Forced Sale.
“The Katherine Ann House”
Her house was as jumbled as a junkyard,
as warm as a tea cozy,
as old as her Grandmother’s thimble,
as worn as a Sterling locket,
as winning as a war,
as engaging as a lock…
and as fatal as an affair.
