SATURDAY AFTERNOON IN AMERICA
(9/14/14)


"we should
do something"

she said

they had
fucked
twice already
and laid reflectively
in bed
at 3pm

"I thought
that we were
doing something"

he responded

he enjoyed
being
in a couple
just not
being a couple
constantly
out in public

it was
a continual
point of contention
in their
relationship

"you know
what I mean

let's go
somewhere

let's have
some fun!"

she wanted
to be entertained

she wanted
him
to entertain
her

fun to him
was having sex
in a dark
music filled
room
in the middle
of the afternoon

away
from the
crowd

he couldn't
imagine
anything
more fun
at the moment

he worked
his ass off
for these few
brief intervals
of respite

what she
wanted to do
only sounded
like more work

pro bono
work

he wished
that she had
some friends
to hang out
with

to have
"fun"
with

and leave
him alone
in peace

from
assessing
her present
mood
he would
be alone

all too
soon
