the arrangement

rolling through the sunrise i quiz myself
on the colors seeping across sky
and come up with:

and not cotton candy
but there are strips of cloud
soaked in something purple grayish
and then that not copper not cotton candy
spreads up and out from behind them
_______
not a conductor and maybe not an engineer
but maybe not an attendant either?
regardless, as we line up down at the enter/exit door on the lower level
and he waits to open the door
he guesses/asks if i live at the p.a.
same as the woman who works the la plata station
(who said it was the big backpack that gave me away)
_______
twenty five cents

at the thrift store in the la plata square
which means we come home with a small pile
of cloths in the backseat
_______
the woman at hyvee saying she grows
her own goji berries
in kirksville missouri which surprises me
but also answers my question 
_______
stress bunnies  cynthia calls the cheddar bunnies
(because they are good to eat when one is  stressed)
as she passes ty and i little handfuls
_______
first things first
when we land i head
towards the cats and moonstar approaches
