what’s the name of this storm?

jazz music and rain
Jean Pierre-
cut pieces of chicken with orange pepper and potatoes
learning to get along with some rosemary
lemon and pepper

a pocket book that can travel on the hip
diet of treacle
noon hour chores that can’t compare to you

you

who breaks all the genre rules
basic training in Quebec
CAF
suffering 12 weeks for a life time

babe-
the washroom is cleaned
the laundry is tumbling in the dryer
and i am working hard on the nothingness
inside a sound barrier….

jazz music and rain
