You’ve heard the story
you go for a beer
next thing you know
shes got three brown suitcases
her pink square shampoo bottles in your shower
skip first dates
let’s share toothbrushes
go grocery shopping
get food poisoning and take care of one another
can you pass the toilet paper?
where’s the iron?
meet the friends before we’ve stayed up all night having raunchy sex
you’re a little chaotic he says
you have no idea
scrubbing cold egg off the morning frying pan
CBC radio plays
Beethoven, Mozart, Bach
we could be wearing our matching slippers
stirring sugar and milk into white coffee cups
without making eye contact
because we’ve seen each other for the last 192 hours.
