The trees in the yard are full of lemons so we put lemons on everything. On the rocket salad, the arugula, the Greek salad, we put lemons in our lentil soup. Lemons in the tea.
The flowers are California flowers. Bougainvilleas, oleander, night blooming jasmine, honeysuckle. The jasmine makes the whole patio smell sweet.
Cats. The island has a lot of stray cats. We are feeding the two that live in our patio. Mrs. Pirate Godwin and Baby Godwin. Baby has a small tuft of white hair on his belly, but the rest of him is black.
I took in too much salt water yesterday and I feel woozy today. I am not a dolphin.
In my next life maybe. In this life, a writer. Among other things. Identities are multiple.
The bitter melon is sweet.
When I lie on the patio and look up, the sky is full of lemons.
