MAN REAL

MAN REAL

Where are you on your computer besides under it,
my husband points his finger at me, asks.

Where are you in your head besides in your head?
Are you on your feet? Does your head rest on your
neck, is your neck comfortable (I hope so)?

Does your back feel good? Is the lumbar region
well-supported?

It feels so good to breathe, yes?
It feels so good.

Are you taking care of yourself? Are you choosing
to hone your tone with honey crisp apples?

The clatter of domesticity in the kitchen
is so nice, yeah? And then subsequent footsteps
with platter of food, industriousness
sinking into the lazyboy,
man real.

~ Lady
