20 more minutes she’ll be screaming for a cabby, while i’m hailing down a paddy

she tipped her hat when
dress dropped


the hat i mean

her standing
head down
fingers holding
the brim
laundry on the floor

i told her
that’s no way to thank
me babe

he spilt the beans
and i was there
to caramelize them
in pork

the smirk was gone the
laundry was
being carried away
i’ve never
seen a basket
look so empty
and so good
the same time

when she calms down,
i’ll give her the
low down

in the mean time,
it’s good
to a have woman
back at my apartment

even if it’s only going to be
short lived
