"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Wearing the Collar

                I live with a lady and four cats
                and some days we all get

                some days I have trouble with
                one of the

                other days I have trouble with
                two of the

                other days,

                some days I have trouble with
                all four of the

                and the

                tens eyes looking at me
                as if I was a dog.

— Charles Bukowski, American, b.1920
