“will you read your poem?”
“i don’t have a nice voice.”
“i love your voice.”
“i don’t want to.”
“why won’t you read to me?”
“i didn’t know you wanted me to?”
“why would I have asked?”
“why are you so upset?”
“i am going to take a shit.”
i hang up and stand in the washroom. i push on my stomach, and i fart. i stand there before calling her back.
“do you want me to read to you?”
she reads to me.
her voice is beautiful.
