Canto CCVI

My wife didn’t go outside today
so now she’s tidying aggressively
and I’m staying the hell out of her way,

try hard to take my bits of mess with me
so she won’t take a vacuum cleaner brush
at full force to my tender testicles,

which she’ll do anyway when she reads this.

    How the hell do you stay out of her way in a small flat…hide under the bed?

    Not all poetry has to have grand or deep themes. I like the gritty reality of day to day living.
