a father in law
A Father in law
An Impatient knock on my door
The father of the woman I divorced fifty years ago
Demanded the sofa I had promised.
I didn’t have the piece of furniture anymore
And offered him an apple, he ate it and some nuts
On a tray while going on about the sofa.
Since I was expecting guests, the nuts were for them
I promised to buy him a new one tomorrow.
I bought the item it is my living room as the father
Of the woman, I divorced fifty years ago didn’t return
