Over

The thing is
We can’t go
Backwards.

I’m leaving the laundry
In the dryer
Forever, and

It’s all your
Expensive clothing
Ruined.

The dishes in the sink?
Piled high like bodies.

Oh, I dare you to
Attempt the cleaning
Process on that mug.

Wait?
Is that almond milk?
But you don’t take milk
In your coffee—
Exactly.

Hey, the dust buster’s
Broken,

The fire alarm
Without batteries,

The oven is filled
With burnt
Pizza.

I’m hopping a one way
Ticket to a place
Where no one
Will find
Me.

And not because they
Won’t want to…

But because that
Part of the
World sucks.

I’ve been there,
And I’m not going
Backwards.
