If it falls from my head
and lands anywhere near my fingers,
it may end up here
or at least somewhere near here.
But if it falls from my head
while my hands are in the car, driving
from here to there,
it’s liable to be found at the side of the road.
And if it falls from my head
while I’m showering,
it’s liable to be
just another thought that’s all wet anyway.
P.S. Here’s a very fun site for those who are believers in fairy tales.

I’m happy to hear Washington is drying out a bit. You really need some relief in some parts of the state.
