Captured Hands

So, I ask the plant
in front of me.
It gurgles. Dark water runs
over the pot's rim,
onto the front of my pants.
Yep, the front of me
now looks just like
you'd expect,
and no amount of brushing
will do anything
but bring up the bone
hidden beneath the mess.

I swallowed the rest
of my coffee,
put the cup on the table.

What will it cost me
to blot your pants dry?


I jumped, turned around
saw hot-fire in Theresa's eyes,
lips glistening
from the tip of her tongue.

And I'll kiss the booboo
for free
if It got burned.


Crimson blush
made me see everything
through a pink haze -
I was flustered,

I felt like a 13-year old
caught with his hands
right where he wanted them
to be, and Theresa, my wife,
just laughed
knowing she'd gotten to me

again.

A precarious predicament that appears to have had a humorous conclusion. A great story and a fun read!

Jimmy,
I'm glad the good Lord blessed you with a marriage that is alive with humor. ~L
