The Homemaker

I am a Leo, I need an audience,
I cannot perform to an empty house.

But there again, I have been doing so for
fifty years. It is exactly fifty years, in fact,
since I performed Chekov’s Swansong
to an empty house. My own choice.
But apt. Perhaps it is my Moon Sign.
Cancer. The home-maker. I would be happier
with a little house by the sea, a little garden.
A pond with ducks. Nine bean-rows.
