SHE SAID WE HAD SOAP-SCUM BUILD-UP by Mike Faran

 

This was the first time that I
realized that we were truly married –
a seal-the-deal moment

She wrapped a towel around her hips
& vanished into the bedroom
while I sat drinking

beer in the kitchen. My big hound
stared at me with
question-mark eyes

wondering if he’d done anything
wrong;
I wondered the same

Neither of us ever heard of soap-scum
build-up, but
it sounded like a life-sentence
