Soap Opera (episode #10)
'Clearing The Head'

Sunday morning
Frank was up
and out of the house
before sun rise
riding one of his Harleys
through the winding, scenic route
of Angeles Crest Highway
clearing his head
long before a hungover Bianca
would drag herself out of bed
and start chewing his ear off
over some bullshit or another

he will spend the afternoon
in a tiny shit-kicking sports bar
just outside of Wrightwood
drinking with the locals
running the pool table
watching football
and flirting with the local ladies

for her part, Bianca would eventually
start her day with four Tylenol
some hair of the dog that bit her
and then later she would
find herself on a yoga mat
in the local yoga studio
in the Downward-Facing Dog position
profusely sweating
sickly-sweet alcohol
through every pore of her body
and trying to keep what remained
of last night's meal from coming up
just as she did every Sunday

ah, marital bliss...


to be continued...
