A COMPAINT THAT CAN BE CURED

This desk has been on my to do list for at least ten years

My teacher said she only writes done lists

and if you really wanted to do something you’d do it

I have joined the resistance 

and we have all said we’ll forget by Thursday

Military brat means what 

I held your hand

you pressed the button and it lit up like a remembrance

Aren’t we lucky we can take the stairs

When you let go I worry I somehow failed

All the time I spent arguing with my father

I never changed his mind

Why can’t you be an Eisenhower republican I screamed

At least something that makes sort of sense

After screaming comes empathy

but in my family surprise death comes before that
