(Poem on a plane- pt 3)

Another flight

Back

Home

To my waiting

Bed

And my daughter’s

Turtle,

Clanging noisily

In his aquarium.

The fish

Will need

To be fed

And the milk

Is likely bad

By now.

I meant

To cook

That eggplant

Before I left

And it is now

Probably shriveling

Up

And no longer

Very appetizing.

I can’t remember

If I took

Out the trash

Before

I left.

My sister

Was supposed

To come by

And feed

The turtle and the fish and check the mail.

Maybe,

If she smelled

Bad trash,

She would have

Taken it out.

The apartment will be

Quiet and still

Until I return

To disturb

Its peace

With my presence.
