I Like Fun

by Nathan Logan

To negotiate over the phone,

legs crossed in a cow skull chair.

I like fun just as much as the next

in line, please. What’s happening

just out of my line of sight. Beneath

the floor is where all the furniture

gets rearranged. Scary noises

in the hedgerow. I’ll shave my head

to speed up the divorce proceedings.

All I’ve done is come back home.

At my second yoga class, the instructor

says the tandem bike pose is both

relaxing and a metaphor for the next life.

But I don't agree with that.
