Poem Duane Anderson

 

Page 43

The newspaper is at home
on top of the kitchen table.
I meant to bring it,
had it all laid out,
but forgot it after all that.
Now I sit here
wondering what to do.
Can’t read the paper,
then I must read my mind.
It can be found on page 43
of my life,
right between page 42,
potty training,
and page 44, runny nose.
