Outsiders


⠀⠀⠀⠀Leave your dog outside—
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀not long he’ll act the same as
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀others you’ve put out.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Hang your laundry out—
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀soon your secrets will belong
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀to his next woman.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Wear your welcome out—
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀friends you turned your hand against,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀you won’t remember.
