The coupon -- 20% off drycleaning --
Expired a decade ago. On its back,
My father, who did not waste paper,
Wrote down the first lines of a story
About the problems of real soldiers
Occupying an imaginary country.
Has he continued it, I wonder,
Now that he’s crossed the border
And changed his allegiances.
