my boss is getting divorced
mid-life crisis time for him and his wife
childhood crisis time for their kids

what went wrong i don’t know
usual stuff i guess
little things big things
little things that become big things

like this thing he does at the office
he stuffs two or three pretzels in his mouth
then stands behind me where i sit at my desk
and talks to me with his mouth full

little pretzel pieces fall out and litter the carpet
i found one on my shoulder once, too
i wouldn’t want to be married to that

but most mornings i’m pretty flatulent
sometimes it’s pretty bad
i wouldn’t want to be married to that, either

and in fact
i’ve been divorced for years
farting away

the boss should be careful about standing behind me
eating pretzels or not
