weekday fuck, weekend work

weekday night
couch sex
in the month of June
during a Stranger Things
rewatch marathon
can’t wait for that final season
dishwasher sounds in the background
go ahead, yeah, grab me that bottle of lube
the best time to take a shower is at night…
didn’t I tell you,
it’s always good to have things to look forward to
no vacation
no security
if you’re not careful
the summer will slip away
and we all want to live a little,
at least while we’re alive…
I work to eat
and I sleep to wake
so that I can dream
of better ways
to sculpt my passion
into some semblance of reality
good luck, babe!
is what the doubters say
even though you know
that success can’t be that far away
hmm, well, we don’t work on the weekend,
the pencil pushers say…
oh, no?
well I do

“No, but it’s a liquid.”
