Case Closed

A $249 bill
a little laser
making a little cut
in my eye
doesn't seem so bad.

Hot dogs

The highlight of the barbecue
was the overheated puppy
that I forced to sleep on my lap
and the other
that slept at my feet

Tights fit

When I opened my portfolio
for the interview
I immediately noticed

my underwear
I packed inside
for lack of space
in my bag.

11 years later
I can barely fit
all the work
I want to show.

Pipe Dreams

It is hard to imagine
one year has passed
since we signed on the bottom line
for our basement apartment

Head Liner

They said
70 and cloudy

and my umbrella
nice and dry

at home

I used my
morning paper

Final Draft

11 years later
8 college friends
7 hours
at least 9 pitchers...

and 3am
came quickly

Spring Fever

It was cold

and I felt fat

all day

The Receiver

I still feel guilty
about the purse
I was given
as a gift

It is as beautiful as
the purse
she bought
for herself...
that is also
a phone.

I need to stop asking
Cinco di Mayo is.

Good Genes

I never go to sleep
with dishes in the sink

I wash the tub and toilet
to a sparkle
every week

I shower
at least
once a day

Yet, I haven't washed
my very favorite pants
in months...
