Woman, why do you read so much?
It startled a laugh from me.
To be transported I guess.
To visit other times and places
Meet people I otherwise couldn't
You need to get out more.
Get a real life.
I just shake my head.
I've been everywhere from
China to space.
Seriously, you need to meet someone.
And by someone you mean?
Oh come on! When's the last time
You got laid?
Why, last night as a matter of fact.
I laid with Bukowski on a bare mattress
That smelled of horse.
And the night before that, I laid with
Cohen in the front seat of his jeep
And the night before that I laid with
Wordsworth on a ship at sea.
Please! She said. Please get a life.
