living real

The man is giving up

or is it giving in?

he no longer needs me

to help him out of scrapes

the nuisances

living real brings

his drinking has stopped

slowed to a fine drizzle

women now

are a fine wine

best left in the cellar

to accumulate value



I am not called now

to cleanse his laptop

of porn bots

spam pop ups for Cialis

Viagra & levitra

I don’t bother no more

he says

but thanks for calling

I’d lost your number

you know how it is

& I’m hoping

he finds some life again soon

that old suit of mine

has seen too many funerals
