The Back of Me

The Back of Me

Anyone interested in my good side
Will be glad to see the back of me
As I check the horizon and
Try to stop my farewell parties
Being too gay

I will marry my shoes and
Honeymoon well away from
My well-wishers and couldn’t-make-its and
Especially those who for so long and
With such vigour
Have desired my honeymoon
