Yardstick

ruler

I buy towels

I’m not good enough

to use

feed

silverfish

expensive clothes

keep memories

on my

to-do list…

dream dreams

too perfect

to dare

Lose

things never

mine–

try

and don’t

believe

but, oh!

I want

—and wanting

do exactly

what’s

necessary

to insure

that’s always

the case.
