Excitement of a new home dwarfed by
tired, crooked back,
dangling, strained arms.
If anybody’s listening, I’d like
to suggest any housewarming gift
be held to things that don’t need
assembled, put on display or hung.
Just slip a gift certificate to a
nearby masseuse inside an envelope
with sincere wishes for a speedy recovery…
And did I mention I like chocolate and wine?
