Tear Down This Wall, Mr. Gorbachev

September 29, 2011

I sit on my mat and pull out my hair, make a little nest I can gather together and throw away. My husband is at the bathroom sink doing his male toilette. Josie lies like a slug on the chaise and sighs. I read, but am inspired by nothing. I am disheartened by the long day of nausea ahead, the gray skies, the predictable hours.
“Tear down this wall, Mr. Gorbachev.” These are the words in my mind. 
  What wall?
