Thank you for use of the recliner

I’m so relaxed watching you

tease my lover’s hair

and hearing the chatter of women

who’ve forgotten their men

are not around


Do you think we could sleep here tonight?

We are the only ones left

I’m sure we can make a bed somewhere

The new age music, lotions,

candles and fingernail polish

have left me quite somnolent


It would be so nice

if you could sit between us

for a while

and read us a story

We could lay our heads

on your lovely soft warm breasts

and dream about beaches

and sunsets


Sing us to sleep, will you?

Tomorrow is Sunday

and with the shop closed

for the day

we could sleep as long as we want


After you leave,

all we will need is a nightlight
