eat drink stare sleep repeat

by vlock1

I woke up today with
no particular plans
having
gotten through xmas in
one piece

thankful for
that, at
least

no screaming or
approbation
everything calm and
comfortable

came over to the couch
scratched the cat
behind the ears
turned on the stereo
sat down
waited

the sun came
through the narrow
windows

I had some pie
and a couple
of beers

at some point the
doorbell rang
I didn’t answer it

then it was night
it came on fast

now it’s almost morning
and I’m still
sitting here
scratching the
cat
behind the ears
listening to
it purr

waiting
