Oh Those Fortune Cookie Mondays...

Photo by michelle j.


Sing that to someone you love tonight
until you pass out

Or until the other passes out

and you drift asleep
wondering how you ever slept
without the sound of their
chest heaving
and the way it feels pressed against your back.

wondering about the world
they’ve just created in their head.


and then they fart

--rapid fire--

akin to the destruction of a fission weapon
made during The Manhattan Project.

and that soliloquy disapears.


Since there is no gender neutral pronoun other than "it", i have substituted "their" and "they"  for male and female pronouns despite it's gramatically incorrect nature.
