Soul food

When I say yes
she says no,
I won’t be going fishing today.

It’s Saturday, peel me a grape
and pass me the wine,
she says
it’s a waste of time
asking me to be sensible,
but she’s glad that I’m happy
and not miserable,

time for more coffee
she’s drunk my wine
we’re having the time
of our lives.
