A Really Unattractive Fruitcake

   
   
   
she arrived with    
two    
garbage bags    
(one in each hand)    
   
they were her life    
clothes    
shoes    
handbags    
make up    
and no tooth brush    
   
moved in    
   
ruled the house    
ate the empty fridge    
dull grocery cupboard    
strolled the kitchen    
in a pair of hot pants    
talking    
she started speaking    
and never stopped    
   
slept all day    
never worked a night    
   
a year later    
she left with eight    
garbage bags    
a boyfriend    
and a toothbrush    
   
didn't leave a tip    
or gratuity    
   
(complained about the service    
to anyone with a ear    
or social media page)    
   
the heavy of her
lived with us
in a
cheap deodorant    
after taste
for months afterwards  
   
still scared shitless    
she'll find us    
   
and we've moved twice
