I can’t stand the noise in my neighborhood
So I spent the night with a friend.
She lives in a baby boomer town.
They had some fireworks,
but I’m pretty sure no one got shot.
The Colony is a little township
-Now a big city-
That was bought and built in the 70s.
Fox & Jacob came in
and bought the land
And built a town.
Way back before builders made
No ketone strips at work.
Had to use this.
pH 6.. Must be the ketones.
Still fasting this morning.
If I have a bit of butter or cream
Or a half a cup of broth,
I still count that as my fast.
I know not everyone counts like I do.
That’s ok. I do the best I can.
None of what I have uses insulin.
And this is an insulin fast.
Lots of hours on the clock.
Long 14 hour shifts
In a hot little room.
And that’s ok.
Let’s just get through
The holiday weekend.
