Ellipses VI: Island

On call, the midwife sleeps whenever she gets the chance
Jupiter spins slowly, everyone contributing to the purpose of the house

Her partner happily makes the meals and cuts her pieces of store-bought cake
Often times he sketches the bay through the window; she is content to sit by his side

Dogs lie on the floor with rough paws and resting eyes, hushed magistrates
Little black rabbits with red eyes in the peripheral, taken as good omens

When visiting with relatives after many months have winked by,
they find it nearly impossible to keep quiet company, glasses filled with froth
