Selling Out

I don’t know if I’m nervous
Or just glad
To finally be doing it

We meet at three

One last load of laundry
Look for coffee cups

I wonder if I seemed anxious
or scared
waiting a week to meet
neither is true
I worry about the effect of perception

eat a bit
move some boxes

Maybe a quick run
I have two hours
To be complete

Moving the things a mom keeps
Making sure the car starts
Drilling roots to implant poison

I just want to be ready when she gets here
Everything in order
The price understood
