A fun romance

it will be,

until we have scheduled Friday sex

and you neglect to text me;

I start imagining my wedding dress

and stare at baby buggies through shop windows;

Your mother makes lamb moussaka

and I am vegetarian.

Then it will be life.



Another poem earmarked for “Emily’s Poems for Modern Boys,”  a set in progress for my next volume of poetry.
