A Different Sort Of Grocery List

by Joseph D. Reich

1. they sadomasochistically whip each other
     on the linoleum in front of the refrigerator
2. the husband joking around the wife very serious
4. adhd child quite focused over mom’s smart phone
     downloading just another ap he’s not supposed to
5. mom runs the bubble bath and dad opens up all the windows
     and skylights and slider door to the back porch as loves when
     all the lightning and thunder and downpour come tumbling in
6. he’s a stoic and a fatalist and claims this is the only thing
     which really helps during his sleep cycle of nightmares
7. along with a cup of seltzer falling asleep to the weather
