Coming down

Coming down to the kitchen,

my tie tight about my neck,

I see you have laid out black

tea and two eggs. And I wonder

if the seed we lodged in your

body around midnight is burgeoning.

But that evening,

you press our shirts and

skirts, and the iron

seems to hiss with derision.

      A poem is just a poem. It is not necessarily based on one’s own real life.
