nutshell love

My dinner is ready
I smell it from the letterbox
Two bills and an ebay recieval
Tuna mornay, with dead horse please sweet.

Pale ale to wash it down
Food in a bottle some may say
Thanks for dinner Mum
And my thankyou is recited, as if on cue, as if they knew.

We banter of school and kindy was cool
Bullies and kids of names we’re not too sure
Canteen regiem and money we’ve spent
All in the course of twenty minutes or so.

No dessert unless your dinners smashed
So ice cream and ice magic it is
Put up your bowl, push in your pew
Time for a bath, and they knew.

Bubbles please Dad, as the bottle farts it out
And we laugh like school girls
In the midst of sex ed class
Some “Spiderbait” as background, Aussie as.

Into ya PJs, Ill read you a Spot book
Perhaps a Paul Jennings if youre good
Quiet time sprouts, gimme a squeeze
Seeya in the morn, sweet dreams, luv ya heaps.

The dishes are sorted
Crap TV is on
As sweet kisses are shared
On the couch with the broken scotch guard arm.

We settle and make love
We play music as I prefer
Every time is a new time
And I kiss, as if she was my first, as she will be my last.

After the chaos we caress and talk jargon
Anything that comes to mind
Often we giggle while I put on a movie
What if I talka lika dis…? We laugh

Little kisses as its time for myself and the missus
To find our comfy spot, curl up and hit the hay
One last " I love you", before the snoring kicks in
I crack one last joke, bit shes already asleep.

So I stare at the ceiling, and watch the chosen flick
I am the big spoon, her breathing soon gets thick
Goodnight my entirety, I love you more than I love myself
But she is already asleep, so a kiss on her brow will do.
