Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,

December 22, 2011

Click of contracting metal
as heat fades
cat asleep on tabletop blanket
to my left
wife asleep too early
few feet in front
sweet, perky
good looking woman
stretched easy on couch
too much much inside her head
me awake in chair aware
I know naught of either
or any other
or me
yet suspect
she got more flavors
than I got neighbors
a whole hood inside her house
where I but roustabout without
standing, steadfast
safe harbor
depth determined
no matter ice
of winter solstice
this longest night of year
