Fire Alone Can Not Burn: a marriage

will spontaneously combust
similar to the lone man on a mattress
discovered in ashes one bright afternoon, after eating
(apparently) leftovers packed by the skinny waitress

thank god i'm not the only one sneaking out into the ice shanties. (did i just say that out loud?) i'm kidding. of course.

i really like how this one is from a masculine point of view. that's new for you, right?

and i love the irony of him looking at the waitresses breasts while lamenting his wife's infidelities. nice. human. real.

hi!

(miss you.)

Is magical realism a good way to describe your style? This is lovely.
