We’ll be in the living room
not our usual open house in the country twenty people or thirty
forty five one year some sat outside on the porch
Francine met a 90 year old woman named Edna
hitchhiking to McDonalds she picked up Edna
brought her to our house Edna told the whole room
about the Communist Party. she was the Thanksgiving star.
Maybe this year we will bring chairs into the hallway
six apartments on this floor and we will all
give thanks together that in January this president will be gone
and this year this impossible year will have ended and
by spring maybe there will be a COVID vaccine and we
take off our masks and start everything over again.
