Budget Meeting

by Doug Draime

I PUT IN a comma
break the 4 lines
into 2 stanzas,
while I talk to my wife
about economics.
I finish it and read
the poem aloud to her.
She looks up at me from
our stack of bills,
and smiles gently.

"That's very interesting, honey.
And, oh, thanks for reminding
me. I forgot to budget in
the $25 you made this
month from your writing
career."
