Halloween Happy 2022 Prompt: Fav Mug
If I could choose a place to sit and rest my bones
I’d want to rest them on a wing back chair in front of a roaring fire
in a house full of cob webs and ghosts and mice.
If I couldn’t have that chair in front of a fire
and I wanted to rest my bones because I was very, very tired
maybe I’d choose to rest them under a big tree with dry gold and red leaves
near a stream full of smooth gray stones covered with slick green algae.
Or maybe it would be more practical to just sit in a diner
at a counter and ask for a warm mug of tea
and sip it slowly and watch the time pass on the stopped clock behind the counter
hauling around a bunch of bones in a canvas bag all night long
is hard work.
