A Poem: Town Rules 

Rhinebeck, NY

remember some evergreens on the way out of town are taller because they belong to rich people

if a big house has electric candles in each window of its façade those people will have a well-stocked fridge and at least two bathrooms

when someone’s dad is basically divorced but it’s still pending you shouldn’t ask the kids about it if you see them at terrapin on a weekend with the mom

if a friend’s mother desires the friend to stay home for penitential reasons but you want the friend to come out and play ugly foil to your burgeoning pretty you should still go to town by yourself but with fewer buttons buttoned
