What can you do, really?
What options do you have?
You can disagree, but that won’t make him sober.
You can acquiesce, but that won’t make him useful.
And so I guess it is probably for the best,
that I fold and turn this shiny blue paper
into a symbolic angelfish,
that floats easy and forgetful
near a knobby coral
somewhere in the light blue.
Yes, that’s what I’ll do.
