Balcony View

I do not blame you

left the door wide open

treats on the door step

clutter in the bedroom.

I basically asked you

told you to get the fuck out

I need you here

but I do not deserve you

you could be solving global warming

curing cancer

writing the next great manuscript

not worrying about what page I am on

did I send out those poems

did you pick up the dog from the groomers



The world needs you

it would be selfish-

to keep that door closed


but, I will not close it behind you

selfish or not

I will watch you

rule this world

and I will write about it.
