the static electricity of her nylons laddered from climbing trees in high heels
the rescued cat now safely asleep by the fire snoring not purring
the whiskey a jewel in the cut-glass decanter the glint in her eye
again the sigh as thigh crosses thigh she singing softly to her
self as if she was the only one left in existence
the clock leaving a longer and longer silence between each tick
the clock now stopped
looking elegant in a thin white vase the yellow chrysanthemums
just stare and stared as if they were frightened of the silence
a shepherd carrying a lamb in chipped china looking out of place
without his companion piece a ***** shepherdess broken only last week
it was ten past 7 though the clock did not know that
Time had abandoned the room outside the first snowflake falling
Do not attempt this at home children and always remove high heels if you should do so. Make sure you have a responsible child supervising you.
Martha suffered a snapped heel and torn tights due to her hasty action in saving her cat who came down when she came up( thus rescuing itself in reality)and had to be rescued by burly laughing firemen.
