Note on the Door

Pete -
I'm taking the kids -
please don't come after me.

My new address is
164 Mt View Rd

but that's just for
forwarding mail or
anything interesting.

About the bills -
please take care of them.

Our lawyer, Richard,
will be in touch - in fact he's
with me now,

Love always -

(p.s. - it's my new name
like on the back
of those new jeans Richard
bought me recently -
did you notice?)
