Something I Would Never Say to My Roommate

Something I Would Never Say to My Roommate

Jessica Ibarra
Spring 2019

You annoy me when you clean my side of the

room

Napping nastily on the north corner

Your snoring sounds like a plane

That keeps me awake all night

But later—I’ll get my revenge

I sneak a Hot-Pocket of yours out of

              the freezer

              or 2

              or 3

I eat all your sweets—I take your socks

I use your perfume—

I hate how you keep your room so neat

your voice haunts my dreams

So whiny like a car’s brakes

Tell your boyfriend to leave

he’s not funny and

              neither are you

Sincerely, your roommate
