Please do not
foist
your
bad free verse
on my
Life.

The way you set it up
line
by
line
is not
meaningful
or
beautiful
and is certainly not
necessary.

Furthermore,
your free verse reads
like a scribbled to-do list
clutched in the fist of a suburban soccer mom
running errands on a random Wednesday afternoon
including a trip to the supermarket
where she will check from her list
toilet paper and
tampons and
a pound of domestic ham sliced thin and
a loaf of white bread and
a gallon of milk and
cereal
(the kind with lots of fiber).
