Though I know you dislike formal titles,

A list poem should post no problem, so:

How about we start with a Craigslist ad?

How about we start with an apartment,

With vegetables cooking on a camping stove

Two hundred feet from America’s wealthiest street.

How about we start with three pairs of hearts:

Two oldest daughters, two non-normies,

And one of us watching the two of you

Become You Two.

This is how it works, isn’t it?

A friendship that turns into love,

A friend that turns to watch it,

To joy in it


I daresay

A hopeful pup.
