The Lost Continent of Atlantis

Posted on

The lost continent of Atlantis

was discovered today,

shoved under your bed, resting on a pile of dirty socks

and PopTart wrappers, next to your missing retainer.

No one who has ever seen your room

was surprised when I described the green hills,

the ships in the harbor,

the castles and the marble statues rising up.

If you ever find this note—

(unlikely, since I tucked it beneath your pillow–)

you will sigh and roll your eyes

and ask, Can’t you just tell me

to clean my room, like a normal mother?
