I don’t want to do the dishes!
I have a saved pocketed packet—
from Wendy’s four for four dollars;
salt and pepper, fork, and a napkin.
I’ll eat out of the can.
They complained I stayed in bed all day.
That’s not true.
I get up to eat
and go to the bathroom.
I have spent my life pleasing others
Whether friends, lovers, or out of respectability.
I did it without regret for the experiences.
Finding a self, by its self
In the grace of Mystery in an unknowing cloud
I now, have to learn how, to please myself
—without offending another.
I remember when I would waddle like a duck
—but being a Quack wasn’t always fun 😊
