This Is Really Living, She Said

by Jerry Ratch

She bought herself her own apartment 

That was when she told me 

I have a hard time getting out 

Unless it's really important like work 


I told myself wake up early 

Get some coffee, but I oversleep 


I had a massage therapist come to my house 

And I thought: This is living 

I'm getting a kitty after my vacation 

I can't wait
