The Picture Of Ryan Reynolds

Whenever I go over to her place
he’s there
in his Y-fronts
and there’s this mark
on his arm and the freckles
that look good on a man,
a just-right shade of tan too,
smoking brown.

When she and I link by the window,
in front of the TV, on the sofa,
there he is, smiling white
celebrity teeth
at her, at me.

I wonder if one day
I’ll go around and he’ll have gone,
that day
when she rolls his canvas
body up
and throws him away.
