Green over Pink

by Hal Sirowitz

DON’T get me wrong,
she said. I like sex
as much as you do.
But it's a beautiful day.
The past few days
of rain makes everything
outside look greener.
Why stay in bed
and waste the day?
I'm not saying sex
would be wasteful,
but if you gave me
a choice of what colors
I prefer to look at
this particular moment —
a dull pink bed spread,
which I have already seen
or a bright green lawn,
which I haven't seen yet — I
would choose green every time.
