Jane's Gone
unknown

I'm lazy like a landscape; a calm scene
 1
with a bridge, a river, an old stone house,
 2
and a thick band of hand-painted sky.
 3
Water flows, clouds pass, seasons change,
 4
but the picture remains motionless.

I once had a wife, Jane, who liked to go out,
 6
but I was a homebody. So I told her one day
 7
that I was tired of her ways, sleeping in her
 8
company was nice, but she never let me sleep;
 9
I was her john, her five times a night sex pot.
 10
She said, she wearied of me, said I was intolerable:
 11
she left me in the local wood, put me out of the door,
 12
but I returned, to lose her in the supermarket.
