To Do List

Kathi Wolfe

Make coffee.
Sort socks.
around the universe
and back.
Meet and greet
the human condition.
Pack picnic lunch
for your ghost.
Reshape the moonlight Sonata. Go to therapy –
play monopoly
with sorrow,
musical chairs
with grief.
Write a poem
that sends
all the other poems
to the nearest bar
for a drink.
As an afterthought –
eat fire.
