Almost 100 Proof - March 21, 2023

I can reach

the top shelves

of the two cabinets

that hold wine and their glasses

I’m able to clean and backwash the pool

adjust its chemical balance

feed and walk the dogs

clean the pond’s filter

net the dead fish

fix roof leaks

repair broken necessities

deliver tomatoes cherries

mangoes peaches and

mulberries into the kitchen

straight from the garden

I think I’ve made myself

99% divorce-proof

don’t you?
