My action that saved your life

as i did scarper

 your bedchamber


 the sprung trap door

i glanced back

at you asleep

protected from the cold

between your flannel sheets


i had the most painful notion

that i was in love with you

for i felt  as if

i had just won

one million dollars

then i remembered

i had never won a million dollars

so how the hell

could i know how love feels

  • Now
  • i don’t expect a letter of thanks

but in truth i saved your life

’cause sooner

 rather than later

i would have upset you

then you would have eaten

22 pounds of chocolate

and died
