The Monogamy

There is a couple named Adan and Evelyn


wisened and married in their life’s middle,


succinct from a decade of devout monogamy-


Evelyn says i would like to open the marriage 


don't doubt i love you, baby, of course, it’s not about you at all...


Wisely taming his jealousy, Adan can still prioritize- 


Never Ever losing Evelyn over petty possessiveness


he says to her OK, but it has been a while for me

and you know I have always been... shy. at first….


The first night of OPEN she comes home tinged


she holds Adan, kissing him bubbly like their third date


though truly lip grasping onto the earlier evening stubbled lips


Adan’s first partner was attractive and attracted 


they kissed statistically and he gave her his tongue 


because he was, as expected, limp-


Adan breaks a baker’s dozen of wagon riding next


slowly swallowing her tart shelved whiskey


porously radiant, he fucks her without cumming, 


hours submerged in his tainted sweat-


Evelyn comes home after a new lover


The woman taunted Evelyn in rope bondage, 


she squealed all night, hoarse and sore 


from her rope swing, too tired to smell the alcohol


on her alcoholic husband’s breath- Evelyn sees Rope Woman again- 


Adan hydrates in vodka and sniffs frosty


impotent caterpillars off a punk pinkish haired body
searching her o’keefe with his long fingers... too hyperstatic to relax and allow blood to rush south and stiffen-


NOW

Adan was silently fearful of his wife leaving him 


but re-incarnated, he has found a new faithful romance 


in Ms. (diacetyl)M- the dizzy dim drowsiness


Twinkling powdered Beige...


Adan divorces Evelyn of thirteen years arms bruised and red peppered, he sinks into Beige

Evelyn is devastated, broken, vacant
yes she enjoyed her casual sex, the youthful adrenaline


she knows any supportive words loses to his resistance 


… but there was Never any resemblance of her Adan’s pure embrace.
