This is a poem about how it feels after you go to a
family reunion, and get to hang out with all the
relatives.

Shrink-Wrapped

We leave the reunion, go home
to a house that’s much too quiet.

No more tag or kick-the-can of
killer croquet with my cousins.

No more bloody war stories
told by my big-bellied uncles.

No more staying up late watching TV
while the grownups crazy-laugh
around the kitchen table.

Just us. Boring us.

Our family becomes
like a package of plums
shrink-wrapped
at the supermarket—

so small and tight
I can hardly breathe.

  2. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/
