sustain

these boys saying yes yes

to their loved ones

here beneath my seat at this cafe table

me sipping white americano & brandy

them walking alongside their lovelies

hoping yes is enough to keep

them everything happy

as if yes’ing is enough

to sustain the relationship

I can see the motto now

a happy wife is a happy life

picked out in black on the wall

feeling good housekeeping is

that giving up on themselves

is the key

out of the divorce courts
