Witty, funny and generous
good company, very good company
we all liked him
and nobody liked to be an informer –
besides she must’ve known
couldn’t not have
this was the face that launched a thousand trysts.
At home husband-and-wife singular
away from home willing, eager available: plural. And then some.
High salaried job in the Third World
remote, hard, isolated but sensationally paid.
She encouraged him
the money unbelievable
three – five years … then retirement.
on the day he returned she filed for divorce –
taking him to the cleaners.
