I sat with a man

I sat with a man,
Over Coffee,
He taught me that divorce would cost me 10 grand for each year,
From my pension.
He said,
Contrary to appearances,
He felt positive about the future.
Now, he was in control of his own life,
Nothing more, nothing less.

But he couldn’t stop shaking,
And he could not look me,
or the waitress,
In the eye.

And she was a real looker.
But only a happily married man could tell you that.
