The Inconsiderate Roommate

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – April Poems – Day 5
“What Do We Do In The Shadows – Friday Film Prompt  (Posted by Isadora)
“Write a poem about a supernatural creature who is a troublesome roommate.”

Would it not be less selfish
to buy your own body
lotion? Come on. Eight
legs? That is asking
a bit much. Also, there is
not enough Visine in the world
to take the red out of
twelve eyes. Get wise.
As far as the kitchen, I wish
you would pitch in more.
For instance, cleaning up
all those little bones
left from your latest feed.
It is only common decency.
Perhaps it is time to
revisit our contract.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
