What I’m Doing Later

by: Leif Haven

This is my wife
a Japanese wood saw
it’s called a dozuki.
It reminds me of our nights
on the park bench, playing the bozuki.
I’m sorry that you don’t remember anything.
The easiest way to open a banana
is to break it clean in half.
Pull from both ends.
If you ask me what I’m doing later
I’ll tell you: I’m going to saw this
couch right in half.
