I was a happy kid who grew
to be a happy man,
a lawyer, a community
voice, I was friends with men
and women of all persuasions.
And then I met her. We
were married, and things changed. My friends
said she made me ashamed,
timid, and my standing became
diminished. We argued
for years, decades. She always won.
By the time I left, I
had nowhere to go, nobody
who would give me refuge.
So I lived out my days sleeping
on the short couch in my
tiny office. At least I could
Smoke there without hearing
Her tell me what I was doing
Wrong. At least I had that.
