A portfolio for her verses

The Escapist

leave a comment »

She used to ask me out to dinner or ice cream
when she saw red
I was the vent
as she steamed
about the office.

Now, she dawdles at the neighbor’s next door,
whose laughter I hear through the thin walls,
and I go to bed before ten
to hasten her home.
