Poem #8 of 30

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Never in bright colors
(they are not necessary)

And never in disguise.

Unless you are a magician, happy-maker,
or by request—unspoken
or in writing are fine.

Come empty handed, preferably

When least expected and always
when promised

With yourself intact

even if duct tape is necessary
because you can expect
to be whole by the time you leave

but first you have to show up.
