⠀⠀⠀⠀$40,000 for dental repair
⠀⠀⠀⠀and we’d just reached our ceiling on debt.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Denise will no doubt act mad at me
⠀⠀⠀⠀and may’ve done differently had she been there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀So far she’s not read this yet.
⠀⠀⠀⠀Naked I stretched out in the balcony chair
⠀⠀⠀⠀straight from an afternoon shower, still wet.
⠀⠀⠀⠀David wasn’t expected until late tonight
⠀⠀⠀⠀and I’d have done differently had he been there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀So far he’s not read this yet.
⠀⠀⠀⠀It doesn’t take much to become a millionaire—
⠀⠀⠀⠀a book, a shot of gin, a European cigarette.
⠀⠀⠀⠀I lost you already earlier in this poem,
⠀⠀⠀⠀and you’ll do differently once you get back there.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀So far you’ve not read this yet.
