Bastet

 Stop looking like a New Yorker.

How could a New Yorker

kill birds so painstakingly

You slink towards me like a scorned lover

returning after a night in a motel

“You’re going to pay for this.”

I love you

for lounging like a woman with nothing better to do

Never apologize.

You share my bed, a selfish husband, taking up all the space

and snoring the whole night through,

but I can’t sleep without you.
