Remember When

Remember when 
we had the air mattress 
shipped, the one my brother
sent, for Christmas?

to our last 
known address; how
we'd placed bets 
as to the meaning 
of twin size?

And as we had keys made 
for our new place, and
opened the box, to find
no mattress at all, instead
neatly wrapped gifts, 

a rocket and a monkey 
wondrous and sweet 
mystery.
