and so he drank in the pub

and in the evening, when she was tired
she would pull the ties from her hair, and it would fall
releasing the scent of her morning shampoo
and the coffee and cake after supper
and all of her daydreams

and he did not want to miss the moment
between then, and when she fell to sleep, so sound
that no one could wake her
and so he threw back his drink, said goodnight
to his buddies, and left for home
