My friend Steph works at the Austin Public Library. I found this gem of poetry from Ellen Bass on her Tumblr.


Bad things are going to happen.
Your tomatoes will grow a fungus
and your cat will get run over.
Someone will leave the bag with the ice cream
melting in the car and throw
your blue cashmere sweater in the drier.
Your husband will sleep
with a girl your daughter
