Poetry Drawer: Their Own Category by Taylor Dibbert

He’s making
A mental list
Of the things
He misses
And those
That he doesn’t,
He has
Awful in-laws
In his
Does not miss category,
Then he realizes
That those people
Actually belong
In their own category.

Taylor Dibbert is author of the Peace Corps memoir Fiesta of Sunset, and the forthcoming poetry collection Home Again.
