I was waiting for my wife
in this empty restaurant
The erotic book was “Written on the Body” by Jeanette Winterson,
and I’d identified with the narrator-
“Louise let me sail in you over these spirited waves.
I have the hope of a saint in a coracle”
My wife had surprised me
when she said the narrator was a woman.
I couldn’t believe it.
Looking for clues I finish the book.
There is no evidence,
the waiter smiles.
