Guidebook to Loving Me

[Prologue] I am uncomplicated, my instructions

written in invisible ink also useful for wrinkles

in the dark use a flashlight

[Rule one] tell me I am funny and smart

and beautiful

repeat every half hour

set your alarm

[Rule two] tell me you love me

alternate that with the other stuff

[Rule three] buy me a Mercedes.


I wanted a Mercedes ever since my father

bought one & let me drive him to the hospital

it was a cream puff


I keep this guide in the glovebox of my Mercedes

safe but accessible in case

you get hungry.
