Maybe Miscast

If you’re not happy, things can be a mess. And I’m not talking about the housework.

You Weren’t Careful What You Asked For

too young to marry
ill-omened shipwreck
Let me present you to
making beds and washing dishes
the thick carpet. the three telephones tablecloth pay your debts,
good taste
Gadgets and machines to be cared for,
claustrophobic. restless. in the house.
slowly, slowly
I think you said that
You won’t get much done today
