The Short Couch



The Short Couch

“This,” my father said,
as he moved it into
my first apartment,
“is not a love seat.
It’s a short couch.”
I, a not very sober
seminary student,
just smiled.
What daddies
don’t know
can’t hurt them.

This is a Magpie Tale. If you’re looking for my Project 365 post it will be up tomorrow night.
