In a Way, That’s Where It Ends
Kate Dougherty

And you should answer yes I know

the baby cannot read. I want the baby

to eat a carrot. I want the baby to loll

at the foot of our bed. I want the baby

to get how when we argue. I want

the baby to squirm on the sleeping bag

we keep on the sofa.


If she could sit between us

that might be a lovely shot to get.


Get well soon. Wishing you the best.

Wish you were here more often. She

doesn’t realize she’s making an enemy

out of herself. It just says it, doesn’t it?
