Lighting the burner

a day for lovers and leftovers,
bubble and squeak halfway through
the week is what makes me, me.

As for the loving,
it’s never too late.

Look, he said,
a fortune cookie,
she saves it for a rainy day.

Enough of this frivolity
must get up,
shower and shave
and make some tea,
seeya later.
