On my knees
in the wet spring soil
They are eaten by
Next spring I will plant
Deep pink jellyfish
to where? I guess
they know. Sirens,
they sting like acid
or just float by.
Yesterday, I turned the sauna off but
it went back on and
I could not turn it off,
it would not stop.
Luckily, the door wasn’t locked from the outside,
so I was able to get out of there.
before I was steamed like a corned beef.
Then, while I was brushing my teeth,
you reached over to kiss me
and bumped my elbow.
That easily could have sent the whirling electric toothbrush
right down my throat, but,
fortunately, nothing happened, and
I didn’t mention it.
During the total eclipse
you turned on the light over the sink.
You said, I don’t have time for this.
A GIFT FOR YOU!
First of all, it was on sale!
And it came with a rebate!
Then the fifteen-percent-off coupon
that I found in the paper,
which is taken off after the sale price!
And I got a “floor model”—but
it was brand new,
I saw him take it out of the box!
So that was an additional ten percent off
I really wasn’t supposed to get!
The salesman was so nice!
He must have really liked me!
He said this was the last one and that was it for this sale!
I was really lucky!
That’s what I call a bargain!
I hope you like it!
