Going to be a quiet day I think. I'm debating doing laundry, but at this point the "cons" are going to win I think.

Had a power outage for about 12 minutes first thing this morning, which felt odd as we are NOT having a storm. It's rather nice again today, except there is less sun and more high cloud.

The End of the World

Quite unexpectedly as Vasserot
The armless ambidextrian was lighting
A match between his great and second toe,
And Ralph the lion was engaged in biting
The neck of Madame Sossman while the drum
Pointed, and Teeny was about co cough
In waltz-time swinging Jocko by the thumb --
Quite unexpectedly the top blew off:

And there, there overhead, there, there hung over
Those thousands of white faces, those dazed eyes,
There in the starless dark the poise, the hover,
There with vast wings, across the canceled skies,
There in the sudden blackness the black pall
Of nothing, nothing, nothing -- nothing at all.

Archibald MacLeish
1892 - 1902
