Bottle of Pinot
G and T
arm-in-arm
the walk home
“Let's take it slow”
she goes
slow
-it’s been two years-
but I'm not really
an RnB kinna guy
ain't got the groove the vibe
I'm not like Jodeci
I got two speeds
stop
and go;
but something ain't right
right
out of bed
kitchen
flowers of camomile
the reading-book
Plath
Larkin
Bukowski
maybe not the most romantic maybe
that woulda been more Catullus is it?
Horace
Odes and Epodes
Sappho;
when the sleepy come
it was time
but the feeling'd gone away.
I made a move
onetime
she said “I'm not in the mood”
she said
“not now”
and fell asleep.
06.46
#morningofglory
one hand nests round her leafy form
another forages afield
only
“I'm so hot”
she mumbles
meaning not;
I turn over get up
make green juice
Assam tea;
when she came in the kitchen she was dressed
she didn't want her drink
said “I think I'm gonna go” she said
and left.
