from by Evan Lyle Jensen



Wine glasses dusted off
Family meeting at the conference table
You would argue, if you were able.

The Parking lot next door is full
“Good for them” you say “they wanted it more”
while you starve for that traffic at your front door.

Invest in something more
What you have is not even close
The best seats are for those who make the most

Get out of our heads

Blue curtains meet again
Only this time, this is for good
You would leave the open sign on, if your wallet could.

Dozer runs in the parking lot now
A black mess of lumber and memory
Another day there, you will never see.

Sell short your neighbor
Or trade them for something, anything,
You can possess, cut out the white collar
Make room for the rest.

Stay out of our heads
