skipping work before having sex with robert

snow falling outside the cracked window
cat purring in my left ear
beans burbling in my right

this is the perfect day
to play hooky

the heat sneaks up behind the couch
to caress my dream of freedom
the white presses itself against the windows

somewhere money is making noise

somewhere busy fists are pounding out change

but i’m taking it slow
as the wah wah pedal cries the onion’s lament
the crocodile turns real

and i bite into life
