Modern Couple

Chuck is a big man
He wears t-shirts and jeans.
Chuck has no arms.
He left them in a dirty, little field
in Nam.

His wife, Kim, is Vietnamese.
She talks non-stop.
Chuck has never hit his wife with his fists.
He doesn't have any, but he tries to
kick her with his heavy Wellingtons.

Kim raises flowers
and sells them under a white tarp
at the street fair.

On Saturday, Chuck eats a burger nearby
and flirts with the waitress
with red hair.

He keeps a measured eye on Kim
and angers if she talks too long
to a gentleman buying flowers
for his wife.
