As I lay living - thinking
reviewing the day I'd got
through - some how
counting the people I'd
interacted with
those I'd shared a joke
humor exchange - with
maybe listened to someones
troubles - hopes - fears - history's
of a man sat on towns bench - who's pit bull - I'd stroked made a fuss of - complemented the man on how good the dog looked he said - she came first in his life - he'd go with out food so she would not go hungry pity - he spent his spare cash on booze - very sad - dog a sweaty - seen both around - never known the dog to bark - mosey up - asking to be made a fuss of - the pit bull that is
when contact look as to be on going - lay on her back - purring
yes I said purring - happy dogs content dogs - do purr!

thinking of a woman met at the bus stop for The Loop
she had treeted her self to life size modals of cute small dogs
the woman talkde with others about the bargains she;d sure had
bus came - I picks a seat - the lady - joined me - chose to sit with me - we talked about her model dogs - we joked about not haveing to feed them - or clear up ''deposits'' so no poop bags ever needed
we talked and talked about different breeds of dogs
Our conversation - lasted for about five minuets or so - it was good - the day was good - not how much time - it is - how
that time is used.

lay waiting for sleep to take over
wondering - what the new day has in store
waiting for me

A wonderful story of a day's events. You were brave to pat the pit bull. Aren't they aggressive? The company of a dog is a wonderful thing. They never stop making you feel needed. Nice work Ken.

Feeling this poem all the way, it never stopped being interesting, only more and more I wanted to know, to go with the story, follow the principals, follow the mood and ways of the characters moving.

" not how much time - it is - how
that time is used. "

The best quote from this great piece.

Love the title, that time before sleep is often a time for reflection and anticipation of the new day to follow.
