Past Due
 
Quit stalling, will ya? You were supposed 
to be here by now. Your mother is so anxious 
 
for your long-anticipated arrival she’s been
bouncing on an exercise ball to urge you on. 
 
What fun times you’re missing! What sights! 
Just today I saw the sun go down in a profusion 
 
of toxic colors like a ship full of chemicals 
burning intently at the edge of the world.
