I wish
You'd stop by my life today.
Go through the brochure;
See if you are sufficiently
Covered for accidental loss
Of identity
On purpose,of course.

I wish
You'd water my plants for me.
Feed my cat, walk my dog,
Make sure the dust sheets are in place,
Before you move house.
I am out of town
For a long , long while.

I wish
I could count on you.
Weigh your words in scale,
Believe when you say
Truth is but a negation of the false.

I wish
You'd remember me.
Red marks on your calendar
Know me as a red letter day.

I wish
You would lie to me.
Call me up again and say
I love you
in the present tense.
