telephone call By Troy Kody Cunio

telephone call

an old friend called me
wanting to get married
so the Air Force would
let him move somewhere
he doesn’t hate.

I said yes.
he was joking.
I wasn’t.

he said we might have
to adopt, to make it look
real.

I said ok.
he was joking.
I wasn’t.

he said, how funny would
that be, the two of us
married with a kid, even
though we’re straight.

I said
ha.
