Homesick poem

Things suck now.

The Spanish navy has been blamed
For giant squid deaths.

Hostile attachment features
Are all the rage.

My latest caseworker is
Extremely sketchy
About the Contessa’s entrance.

(Who could blame her?)

Memory does not serve
Natural lawbreakers
On a crimson Monday;

When things fall off trucks
It takes a show of hands
To determine how a word like
“Darling” is defined.

And maybe I’ll come home in the spring,
And maybe I won’t.

If I had to pick a favorite of my own poems, it would be this one.

Thanks to Gina for help with the sign.
