The Gods Have a Crazy Sense of Humor

The envelope was addressed to the previous tenant.
The tomatoes had dropped off the vine one by one.
There was a text message from an unknown number.
A spider had built a web from an ancient algorithm,
while I counted collapsed civilizations on my fingers,
kings and warriors represented by hairs and moles.

I’ve come a long way from wetting the bed, I told her.
She didn’t act too impressed. Her yawn swallowed
half of the room while Pandora played another song
and Sisyphus wrote another poem.


There is a park in the middle of this city,
in the middle of the park is a fountain,
in the middle of the fountain is a coin.
A kid got his wish, and mom and dad
are back together.
