Married World

I am married to a man

So disconnected that when I ask him if he likes Beyoncé

He says who?

Never mind I respond

Not important.

He tells me about router bits and

The presidency of John Adams

He shoots arrows and throws knives and plays the piano

But he does not know about riots in the Midwest.

He is deeply concerned about tyrants in the 19th century

But has not read the news.

Sometimes I play a popular song for him

Isn’t it great, don’t you like it? I ask

And he agrees and says he loves it very much

Hearing Mozart in his head.

When I show him an article about current events

Or a political meme that is funny

He asks, can’t we just look at cute cats?

I say fine

Because I like cute cats as much as anyone.
