AVOIDANCE

Fine.
Let’s not talk about it.
But it might be helpful
if you’d leave a little note
in your sock drawer
indicating your intentions.

Perhaps you want to squeeze
in between your mom and dad.
Or let your brother have the truck.
But let’s not talk about it.

Maybe when the time comes
I can ask you on the Ouija board.
if you aren’t still on
the Do Not Call list.

I’m thinking I might sell the house
and the Shelby
and move to San Juan.

You’ll like Puerto Rico.
The coquis will sing to you each night
and in the day
the sun will warm your urn.

By all means
let’s not talk about it.
