Mum's the Word


My cold and I went out for an adventure today.
I couldn't seem to leave her at home, though I've tried.
I don't know why I think it's a her, but I do.
It might be because she keeps urging me to eat chocolate.
Whether she's a she or a he, it'll do her good to get a breath of fresh air.

We went to the conservatory in Wright Park in Tacoma

and were overcome
by the beauty of the floral displays.

She started whispering to me,
making lots of suggestions.

You know, said Ms. Cold,
people might like these photos.
You ought to get off your butt and get prints made.

She's pushy, this cold.

So I said to her,
once you decide to go live in someone else's head,
I just might do that.
Are you planning to leave anytime soon?

She just smiled.
Mum's the word, she said enigmatically.

Indeed.
