Bottle of lotion, bottle
Of soap—eye them thinking don’t
Mix them up, don’t wash your face
With the lotion. That’s nothing
Much, though. Recall the anecdote
Loved by your long-deceased spouse
About the time her roommate
From Australia mistook cream
For some malady—itching,
Yeast, hemorrhoids, one of those—
For a tube of toothpaste. Yuck.
Consider how much better,
How much funnier your spouse
Was telling stories like those.
