nice people speaking
other languages
at 6:00pm
and he hasn’t showed yet
6:10pm and there he is
all fixed up
in a Scottish cap
that I can’t resist
I’m still thoroughly confused
about who he is
we watch
two scary movies
in one night
I open this month’s phone bill
it’s half what it was last month
on Saturday
he was wearing a yellow
honeybee shirt
with a little zipper
at the auction
of Old West End homes
where we kissed
and kissed
I just wanted to turn
all the televisions off
and vie for one of my
neighbors’ parking spaces
