tonight

tonight
I have 2 spiders along a crack in the wall
and there’s one fly
loose

a new woman lies on my bed
reading the Herald Examiner

she has cooked, washed the dishes
and cleaned the tub

she has a good job

I sit alone in here with the spiders
and the fly.

I hear her laugh at something in the
newspaper.   she seems
happy.

I don’t see how these little spiders
are ever going to get that
fly.

everybody waits
everything waits

am I the only one
who lives like
this?
