Selections from janna kriens notebook

Last night

I woke to

three mysterious

knocks on my ceiling,

It scared me, because

in my culture

three knocks on the ceiling is

considered a

terrible omen.


But then

I remembered

my upstairs neighbor


Tony Orlando,

and that is just

what he does.


Tony is always

asking people

to take extra steps,


nobody in the building

likes extra steps


He’ll say.

Why don’t you, tie a yellow ribbon around an old oak tree?


try knocking twice on the pipe.


But come on,

we all know

what Tony really

needs to do

and that is

pay his God damn phone bill.
