A short jab at a stationed people

Let me speak, for a bit, in monosyllables
in God’s gums I took since he wasn’t using them.
If your smile is good, you won the lottery.
If your ass is fine, you won the lottery.
If your neighborhood is silent as a cemetery,
you should have read a book or two instead
of swallowing your husband’s money. Let me speak:
sober up from the clean and quiet transience
you’ll be prey to when your kids sit on toy wands.

 

The Cape Cods got the best of me.
