The City is Full of Couples…

My home is not.
They’re everywhere–
Loving one another
taking the other out for a lovely dinner
walking hand in hand
sharing bits and pieces about their day.

They’re at work too.
They’re everywhere.

On the phone
in the kitchen
smoking cigarettes and ducking out to buy each other lattes.

It’s fine.

It’s fine that they’re everywhere.

And it’s fine that I’m not one of them.
Or half of one of them.

It’s just…


It’s been a really long week.
A really long one.
I’m working like a mule with little to show for it thus far.

Penniless and spent.

Can someone come make me dinner?

Read me some Leonard?

Make the day disappear…
