advice to recently married men by Justin Hyde

she's going to sit you down
and tell you
she's lonely
lonely lonely
as a lost earthworm.

you're not going to
one bit of this.
all you ever want is


but her eyes will water
she will emit words
and gesture with her hands.

in turn
eyes dry as sandpaper
you will emit words
and gesture with your shoulders.

ebb and flow
this boomerang vector
as the universe
squats haunches
and scratches
behind its ear.
