Compliance

I‘m no Leonard Cohen

smarter than Rod McKuen.

I can’t talk you into anything

until you get that damn car

fixed, the brakes, duct tape

the muffler sounds with gorilla glue,

hubby gone your business grows,

your children leave,

that house sold

karate those kids intramural

for me to get lucky

with you, a rabbits foot

and your open compliance.

–Michael Lee Johnson

writer, photographer, and small business owner in Itasca, Illinois. He has been published in more than
