For Katherine (2)

        With all the authority of a mime sprinting to a parking meter
he exclaimed, “Two-ply is the greatest invention in human history!”
         We didn’t know how to respond
but in thinking about it,
as one does, presented with a truth universally expounded even from
behind,

        we gathered
back together,
seated outside the cafe while the sun
reared fluffy clouds skyward, and concluded for
posterity’s sake:
         human rumps do prefer two-ply.

Written in response to no prompt ever.

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
