Sorry I Missed You

Sorry I missed you. I had disguised myself as a spoon and was in the silverware drawer. Had you opened the drawer instead of calling my name ... but, of course, how were you to know.

It reminds me of the time you were a piano. Do you remember? If you hadn’t been ticklish that day, and if I hadn’t been a piece of sheet music ... well, I think we were both surprised when we found out the burglar was a musician.

“Sorry I Missed You” added to Poems, Slightly Used.

Thanks. Like they say, “write what you know.”
