Monday Night Madness - Poem by Jon Edward Walker

I wash my dishes
and clean both the kitchen
and the bathroom
even the green film
that has developed around the toilet
shortly after midnight
I turn on Beethoven and
turn off the phone
and I read
in bed

Casey called that night
I found out the next morning
she was drunk and missing me
I think about that
and what I would have missed to
get laid last night
and I decide I’d
rather deal with the
slimy film
and dirty dishes

    Striking and somewhat brutal. There is great honesty as well. Well done. (Report) Reply
