Poem 29/30, Let It Spin

LET IT SPIN

I gave them all the truth and none of the honesty… Gloria, Let the Great World Spin, page 303

Life reveals itself
on a need to know basis

I decline intervention

Every step hurts
more than you imagine

Wish I slept
like you,
on my back,
deeply

How are you?
Fine.
Nice day.
Yeah.

I have no pets
because they’ll die
before me.
I leave everybody
just in case.

I’ve always lied
about cookies,
hide them behind
the coffee cans.

Just for me.

All the truth
I can tell
right now.

Honestly.
