i'm tired of having a cold now.
please go away.
but we have lots of snow now and more coming.
i beat a pound of flax
and brought home 2 quarts
and made 93 sheets of little paper.
it's really nice stuff
and so i went to school yesterday, 
and melissa, my co-teacher
has the cold.
we left early, 
but not until we'd done our juxtaposition origami book exchange.
i'll take photos and post.
i love how these sheets look/sound/feel so very FLAX.
i haven't seen this one
since all the snow began to fall.
i've been pretty bored 
i wrote a silly poem, but the cold is still here. 

sleeping or not
with a head full of snot
a cold is a cold is a cold.

eyeballs are achy
and tummy is quaky
a cold is a cold is a cold.

head twice too big
it thinks of nothing
a cold is a cold is a cold.

tomorrow i know
it won’t be here, no!
a cold was a cold was a cold.
