2020-11-02 – Haunted Tracks and Little Sticks

haunted by rainy train’s
headlights
again,

and those little
sticks that

Nurse Nancy used to
comb through
our scalps
for..

crouching
lice,

and as much as
we hoped she
would,

nurse never
found a
one,

+++

too bad,

that week at home
would have
been

more than
welcome.

..today, a week at home.. doesn’t sound so fun.
