Pardon Me

by JD DeHart

Do not mind me

dear travelers


I am merely someone

else’s left-behind work 


I will be fine with no

sandals or margarita

no splash of fun


Besides, I have a chronic

vitamin D deficiency


Might as well rest here

in the sun; too shy to uncover

I will wait until you leave


or until the night comes

to sneak me away.
