#226 ~ Squeeze

Squeeze it in.

The platform sandals alongside the baby oil,

expertly crushing the biscuit tin

just as the telephone rings and the diary begins to fill

with dates, meetings

the bedroom is in a state of utter pandemonium,

and Milton was right when he coined the phrase for the carnage

that writhes below the manicured lawns.

Squeeze in every last party, every strappy top,

even the oversized t-shirts which you have really got to stop

wearing, wearying Ma, missing the long distance phone calls with

Pa, whatever you do, just squeeze it in, book it in, and hope you have enough time to reel all the memories back in.
