Day 214
11:20 pm

what was that?

a large smooth piece
of leather, thick on the
palm of your hand,
smell hits you instantly,
what is that
to your nose?

a cowboy?
a saddle?

a band you
your name in
to when you
were taking shop?

is the scent
of your memory
what was

in fact
or is it
nascent as you
imagine it to be


Do you

So supportive wife
To your husband
I gather the principal
Reason for your
Attendance tonight

As you usher the ladies
And watch them
Find their seats
Do you scan
Over where your man’s
Will wander post-show?

Just wondering
What that expression
On your face is

It looks suspicious
And a sort of mad
