negotiations

bobby and i are lying
in the grass
as the earth rotates us
into the shade

there have been some heated negotiations
in the past month,
rituals performed
in every room
now we’ve ironed out
a nine month contract
and we’re resting on a blanket
with our fat furry white son beside us

i feel like i’m in outer space
or the main supporting actress
in a science fiction soap opera television series
it’s like
i’m one of the writers
and even i don’t believe it
but i keep performing my lines

oh, there are some good times ahead
that’s for sure
girlfriend be rollin’ into some acrobatic
sexual experimentin’ futures with bobby
who knows
how many more heartbreaks
to go
