Colloquial

For some of our men
it’s Steak and Blowjob Day,
since we’ve had us a month
to show them what suckers
we were for roses and chocolates
ordered online, point, click.

For some of our men
it’s the Day of the Pi,
with its irrational sense
and its absence of closure
and its circular reasoning,
so mathematically precise.

For some of our men
it’s the Eve of the Ides,
so some of them are conspiring
while they sharpen their knives
while others are preparing
to die so as to be recited.

For some of our men
it’s Alec Cawthorne’s birthday,
patron saint of lethal jokes
we’re not expected to catch on to
until they’ve removed their masks.

For you, it’s another morning
to awaken me to your colloquial
way of making the day special.
