DOMESTICITY'S RETURN
(9/10/10)


she has
her problems

I try not
to be one
of them

now
the things
that she
has chosen
to do
for me
apparently
cut too much
into her
schedule

I don't
mind

I didn't
ask her
to do
any
of them

I had
marginally
taken care
of myself
for three
decades
before
our marriage

this morning
I stopped
on the way
to work
to pick up
some groceries
for my office
lunches

something
that I did
hundreds
of times
when single

no
big
deal

I loaded
the food
into the
car

her old
car
that I'm driving
now

we bought
her
a new vehicle
last weekend

the one
that she's driving
to her new job
where she works
15 hours a week
less than I

as I said
she has
her problems

next
the
laundry
