Catbird

Tea with half and half in a house where everyone else is asleep. The house is important here. This is not some sort of alternate world. A catbird faces east, then turns west. The fabric on the armchair is thin from overuse. The catbird turns again to inspect the east. Here are a few blueberries, catbird, but don’t go getting lazy. The house is important here as a reason for the hedge. Hedge = catbird.
