Stay At Home Vacation

We go on vacation, you in one room,
me in another, the bathroom
bathed in sunlight which has traveled

through darkness, evading stones and ice---
and that’s just in our clothes.
The televisions are always on,

the computers are always on.
Seven seas slush in the walls,
fish appear confused,

stingrays, whales and sharks
don’t respect shalom or shazzam.
Our lawn supports the land reforms

proposed by Zapata and zapato.
The barbecue grill has stopped smoking
as had your thighs so long ago.
