S & M

she had this S&M thing going on

& being the man

you do what you can

until she said:

you giggled

all hurt, petulant

did I really? I asked

& thought

yes, why yes, I did

I was putting on your black leather hood

with that long zip down the back

& I was being careful

putting in your hair

so as not to tear

trap it in the zip

& the incongruity of that

made me laugh

& apologized

which only helped us realize

maybe I wasn’t the best man

for this particular job
