Sentiments Situated in a Dwelling Place

Soufflé from before I stopped eating eggs.

Feeling laid back and relaxed

Because I let my OCD out a couple days

Before and cleaner than usual.

Charcoal looking out the window.

Rubbing down my male cat,

Charcoal, who spend a lot of time alone,

But seems satisfied with just a few minutes

Of intense fur massage per day.

Napping during the day because I can't help it.

Playing with the hose and watering plants out front and in the side yard,
