AFTER 5 MAI TAIS

After 5 mai tais

My ma ties

My ties.



THE SEARCH FOR THE PERFECT ENDING TO THIS POEM

Posted signs
On neighborhood telephone poles,

& wasted 3 days of my life,

Looking under my bed,

Posting messages on Facebook.

Finally what I needed

Showed up, as usual,

In the very last place I looked,
