Fabric on the ground

Measure and pin.

Ah! A helper!

Sit on the fabric

Upset the pins

Give me kisses

Crawl into my lap

Production stops.

Canine cuddles provided,

into isolation you go.

Work resumes.

Your toe nails

echo in the hall like

a cavalcade of snare drums.

Thundering timpanic tribulation

of tip tapping echoing through my brain,

draining me of peace.

Your toe nails

four times four feet times two

(two square roots of feet)

Are a private percussion section

depriving me of sleep.




I need to trim the dogs’ toe nails.
