Where Does Agnes Go? - Poem by Raj Dronamraju
There is nothing left to talk about
Except arrangements, timetables and the like
And where does Agnes go?
Whom does she live with and when?
We are the children of divorce
And we perpetuate this lack of permanence
And we'll answer the question where Agnes goes with our day planners and blackberrys
The latchkey children learn a type of self-reliance
The latchkey children form their own protective union
The latchkey children are forced to trade carefree candy days for single-minded responsibility
Latchkey children grow up to be incomplete adults
Feeling victimized and puffy and filled with disease
Using only 30% of available humanity
But for now Agnes goes directly home and heats up a can of Chef Boyardee
