this is a picture of myself today:
i’m curled up in my chair
ear buds tuned to the radio to take my mind off the ache in my head
a velvetty afghan is stretched from my toes to my nose
and my cat is lying horizontally across my chest as though daring me to move
my eyes are closed

i should go back to bed
i just called in sick to work
it really would be okay to go back to bed
but then i would have to get the cat to move…..
