this groggy head,
unsteady, and—old

Sunday morning
Safe from yesterday

. . . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem | commentary is 'babalaas,' South African slang for a hangover.

Hope you aren't needing to add that to your vocabulary today.

Ahahahaha! At once, I felt it's hangover! But how come for the first day of 2012?! Anyway, happy new year! (*as I'm looking after my right hand, I did not leave comments. On 31st Jan, handsergery.)
Best wishes,Sadami

I love the brightness of this one. It seems very optimistic.

Ah, sun and its shadows -- magic!
