The Best Thing
a poem by Viola.

Boxes arrive.
Stuff unpacked.
Excitement abounds.
Really, who needs that stuff?

If excitement is the point,
wouldn’t it be cheaper
to order an empty box
and watch me nap?

Please excuse our intermittent commenting presence for the next two weeks while 1) road/home construction near Colehaus has our Internet connection super wonky at best, and 2) Mom is on vacation meaning Dad is in charge of Colehaus Cats until September 1st. Who knows what kind of trouble that means!
