No Downer

A fat man
smoking diabetes cigarettes
a finely pressed suit
but what does it matter when it wrinkles into his loose skin
like lazy cellophane
“Man, you’re a downer”

Lunch is at 1230
He usually takes about 45 and spends it planning the bus route
home
Home to a thin woman
sipping holy water
a finely dressed divide
but what does it matter when he doesn’t even see her anymore
the laziest membrane
“Man, you’re a downer”

Dinner is at 0800
This usually takes about 18 and is spent glancing at endless scrolls that never lead back
home
Home to a thin woman
a fat man
But on Friday nights
one will smile at the other
and for three days
they’re Up
