A warm kitchen full of people talking,
faces softly out of focus,
children playing under tables.
Streamers of kelp drift through the scene.
Bits of orange pollen blow on the night wind.
A chimpanzee sits above on a knoll with a stick.
Angling for ants, he drops the stick into the kitchen.
A woman in the living room
is carrying her mother on her back.
She is the only one who can see her.
Another woman is eating a bowl of chain stew.
A third century saint looks in through a corner window.
A teapot, big as a car, is leaving by the side door on cat feet.
