Conversation with Wife 6

“I’m trying to use my daily vocab words,
like I’m not xeric because I’m drinking water.”
You mean desert dry xeric?
“Yes, there’s no wading in the wadi.”
Speaking of water, I need to piss.
“You could go to Europe.”
Why?
“So you’d be Euro peein’.”
You know how they get tannin in tea? Tannin booths.
“Ah my weekly horoscope is in.”
Don’t like horror movies so don’t read those, there’s no hope,
here, have a placebo, you’ll feel better.
“Which plant does the placebo come from?”
The Placebo Tree, the one Buddha sat under for enlightenment.
What’s your t-shirt say, Food Fight?
“Food Factor.”
I prefer Food Fucker. I had sex with oatmeal once.
“Is that how you sow your oats?”
She checks her face in the mirror.
You know you’ll wear that out,
every time you see your image in a mirror,
you steal a bit of its soul.
