Sunny Side Up

Provocative is a nap
between lunch and dinner
it is not my neighbor
in my bed
just the cat

tangerine shades pull against the light
smiling at a string of paper lanterns
our audience
laundry mimics
the sound of sex
spin cycle shudders

But that lover wouldn’t stare,
caress my cheek and say
I will love you forever
or point out that
if we were eggs
I’d be sunny side up
