C Card had been reduced
to guarding empty cups in dinner...

pressed down on time.
The girl sang to him "You can hear the boats go by". He

I have a collection of poems, titled "The P.O.T". Below are excerpts of the work.
The P.O.T (Poured Out Thoughts) is analogous to water being poured out from a pot to the ground. Here, water is a representation of thoughts and the ground represents the peoples’ minds.
