Foreplay, After Having Kids

Anne Flavin because i said so

He kissed me when he left this morning.
And said,
“Thanks for all that
you do around here,”
while nodding his head toward
the sink,
the kids,
the laundry room.

He put those kids to bed when he got home.
He cleaned the bathtub
so I could take a bath
while he straightened up.
He did the dishes and the laundry,
vacuumed even.

He never mentioned sex.
After all of that, he didn’t need to.
