There’s no such regularity as this:
He shaves every time her period starts;
In the sink foamed seaweed-like beard.
Also, this is regular: they’re on the fragile
Spot of the bed whored from Ikea. Below,
A wooden pane is broken or missing, the
Cause of which is uncannily frosted. Never
Many clean clothes in the midget fridge or
The closet. Fast-food containers with
Their leftover calorie awaiting some Sunday
To be taken away, reincarnated forever.
