Each Morning

Each Morning
Ali Sullivan

Each morning
Upon meeting me in the bathroom

My husband sends out a little
Thank you

That he doesn’t
poor vision which requires contact lenses
bikini line issues
uneven skin tone
an eyebrow brush
fine hair
stretch marks across his belly
worries about upper lip hair
or one breast smaller than the other

I get to stand to pee, he thinks, as he
Looks me over in the mirror.
