“Rent a Life, Johnson!”

“Rent a Life, Johnson!”

Wifephone crackles
Wifeless, Lifeless
Unfettered, Unfree
Wallowing in work while waiting, wanting wifeness
Taunting exhaustion, last bastion of
Confidence quakes, crumbles; wall falls
Jericho Johnson joins the Trumpet Tune Jejune.

— Stace Johnson, 1992
