Dear MS

by Anonymous

A solid thick wood door Red chipped paint Peeling and blistering White cracks of light Where you seep in

You are unwelcome

And yet, you come in anyway I’ve told you to go away

One too many times

So here we are together again

Each time I am ready for your untimely visit I find stillness in your storm

Bug lamp humor in your nagging electrical shocks

With your pathetic arrival you bring gifts you can’t even begin to imagine

Do keep this in mind

I will never invite you with open arms I prefer guests, who frankly…

…Have a little more class

…Enter with more grace

…And know when to leave
