On the Randomness of Life

Stardust, the things we know,
You, me, solar moons and the lunar rainbow.
Milky coffee and cheap chocolate and high-end fragrance,
Tattered books, e-readers and high heels.
Sneakers – big ones – and olives and expensive ballpoint pens,
Pasta carbonara and laughter and A-cup bras,
Jameson and Jim Beam, soft-touch keyboards and publisher’s emails.
Fancy watches and the battle of the sexes…
Thinking on those things that ripple through the cosmos and echo into eternity,
Then pondering aloe gel for hair and whether tonight is a good night for laundry.
-Beauty’s Daughter
