February 18, 2020-
Back to what passes for normal,
I helped provide some stability
to a child whose inner world
is in constant uproar.
Then, I took care of my own innards,
getting chiropractic for the last of
an infection that just seemed
to have taken up residence.
Happily, it’s taking the hint.
An overdue haircut
and a plate of enchiladas mole
ended the day just nicely.
So began the shortened work week.
(Mole, pronounced mo-LAY, is a sauce of unsweetened chocolate, used with chicken of turkey, in parts of central Mexico. Lindo Mexico, a Mexican restaurant here offers the dish.)
