BOY'S NIGHT IN
(9/2/11)


I shall
get home
take off
my office clothes
and decompress
for 15 minutes
not having
to adhere
to a schedule
which only
you
can divine

I shall
work out
to Carnivore
Crowbar
and Slayer
instead of the usual
60's hippie fare
or lame 80's
alternative
tunes
that you
prefer

I shall
wait
until 9pm
to eat dinner
because that
is the time
I am usually
hungry
and not
the suggested
four to six hours
before bedtime
bullshit

I shall
watch
a DVD movie
not the Discovery
or Lifetime
channels
on DVR

I shall
choose
a psychological
thriller
or space
science fiction
epic
to unwind
my mind
and not
some predictable
romantic comedy

I shall
kiss you
hello
when you
finally
return home
then eat
whatever leftovers
you've brought me
in the night's
to-go box

just like
any
good
doggie
