The door is shut
the windows are bolted
the cat, the dog, the fish are asleep
The coats hang quiet on the rack.
The equipment lay empty on the desk.
no more food for thought (or otherwise)
I've noticed it has started to get hot.
The air is as thick as oatmeal
I left it too long on the stove.
The air has been off for many days.
So often I am cold.
Does the house smell of glycol?
