Plan B from Outer Space

Okay. I can see now
that it’s not going to happen.
I have a backup plan.
What we need is
a way to pull it off
without me.
Here’s what you do.
First, you must make certain
that I’m not around.
Others may be there.
Just make sure
that I’m not one of them.

An empty chair is a good start, or
an empty space between chairs,
if an empty chair can’t be found.

A glass of water will do,
An empty glass would do
even better.

I’m ready when you are.
Oh—about the check:
We can go Dutch.
