it was not so unpleasant first it was
prone to cuddling
and whispering sweet nothings in her ear.
it did not bring her coffee, but it didn't
ask for money. it
would give her kisses with a thousand mouths.
and there were no complaints of size.
but the laundry bills for the salt-stained sheets
gets to Susan and anyway
the tickets to the aquarium are expensive.
and who wants a long distance relationship with the sea?
