Poetry

In death we will be exposed

... sorry

by Carol Nelson

                         

   Note to self:
                         Throw out raggy underwear
                         And worn out dish towels.
                         The bedside drawer will be dumped OUT.

                         Empties by the cellar stairs,
                         Meds in the bathroom cabinet,
                         Number of dilapidated shoes,
                         Rings around the tub,
                         Withered contents of fridge..noted.

                         I'm converting everything to paper.
                         Too bad it's not money.
