On a Sheet of Paper

Robert Spurling


roommate leaves
I get my laptop
My Little Pony!

lying in bed
the scent of perfume
her hair tickles my face

she come back drunk
gotta take care of her
ruins my night too

the frail woman
drinks from a sponge
cancer takes her

open window
the rain pitter-patters
on the sill

outside barefoot
water on the leaves
gets between my toes
