Enjoy

Watching Carl Sagan Cosmos
With Maitri
Trying to stand on my thighs
we're rocking back and forth
In the rocking chair
Suddenly I'm afraid
I've failed her I think
Maybe i should
Build her a computer.
That will validate watching a
Movie and allowing
It's white light to flicker
And damage her
Brand new brain

Maitri grabs my boob and shoves
The areola between her baby lips
I close my eyes.
Oh knock it off Amy
Just enjoy the fucking documentary.
