Neglect Me

A Poem

Photo by Dan Meyers on Unsplash

Neglect me
so I don’t neglect you
like that old ramshackle house
staring into the wastebin of old trees
a foundation built on discarded dreams

Neglect me
so I don’t neglect you
because my tank is always full
and you are always running on empty
no gas station in sight and not a drop of oil
