Jessy Randall


He signs a piece of paper
saying if he dies
I get $300,000.

Then he leaves.

Leaving is
like dying.
Leaving could be

With $300,000
I could buy a lion.
I could buy a llama.
I could buy a llama
farm. I could make
sweaters from their wool.
I could become a llama wool millionaire
and take those millions and buy a spaceship.
I could discover life orbiting Alpha Centauri
and find a new boyfriend on the new planet,
one who really understands love, and what it means,
and what it requires.
