Existence with you, a daily test
fail, pass, withdraw, confess
stress, grading on worthiness
curviness graded down.
Mother’s lap boy, sangfroid
killjoy, criticizing, chastising.
Your theme: money, money, money
no honey, no funny, nobody’s body.
You chose submissive, surprising not,
no brain drain, man talk, mawkish clot.
Plot: she selected your money, money, money
Suckling, duckling, constant diapers.
She talks girl talk, paints nails, green card to
marry blowhard, while I dance, romance,
no passing glance, failed the test, no contest, my
happiness, blissfully unscarred, breathing,
no seething in my own backyard. Joy.
