Surprise!

Standard

Surprise parties are dangerous
Ask my husband
Who has heard me retell the story
For 25 years
Of how he didn’t come right home from work
Detoured with friends
For beers by the lake
Stumbling to our tiny first apartment
Hours later
Opened the door
To a party gone wrong
In the June heat of an airless efficiency

(Hey, Michael,
We are waiting.
Where are you right now?)
