“Famous Author’s” Husband

by Caddo

Wife’s total recall
Of things imaginary
Proves entertaining—
Till I slip up, forget her
Most urgent realities.

Now I’m in doo-doo.
She’ll make me a character
In her best-seller;
Start calling me by his name—
For Stomach’s sake, I’ll answer.

Ah, perils of life
Married to “famous” author.
She burns with saga:
Epic tale–ardor, drama—
‘Tis sure, I’ll never be bored.

Wild, her seas; tall ship
She sails upon verse, turned phrase;
My bride, friend, forever love;
Blessed, I’m her horizon—real.
