Just another morning pick-up!

After moving
two 3 lb. weights,
a Jake and the Never Land Pirates laptop,
a very realistic-looking sea turtle,
a plastic hammer and wrench,
various limbs and torsos of fallen soldiers
with some intense-looking weaponry,
a bag of colored feathers,
tentatively picking up what appears to be a fossil,
but no, it’s only a piece of an Oreo
from sometime yesterday (I hope)
off of the oriental rug, I assume the position.

Now I’m ready to be enlightened,
but it must be quick,
before a small person
finds her way back
to Totoro herself onto my chest again.

Happy Sunday, all. Hope you find a few moments of peace today.
