Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.


April 9, 2015

one of my college roommates
was a practical sort of fellow
troubled by the ongoing difficulty
of finding a pen
Mark bought two dozen
stood at the door
and threw them into our living space
problem solved


with six extra hands in the house
I’ve grown accustomed to a lack of pens
(as well as glue sticks, tooth brushes,
barrettes, hair brushes, remote controls,
phone chargers, socks, and envelopes)


last night when I couldn’t find dental floss
I looked in the other bathroom
and finding it also bereft
calmly took two more spools
out of the Mega-Mart Mega-Savings Pak
flossed my teeth
and went to bed
