being selfish

being selfish
and carefree
seems to come natural
these days,
what with
the kid gone,
marital status at one,
with only me
to fend for
to decide being lazy,
or going out for fun.
there is no plant to water
no pet that seeks
to play.
let the phone ring,
the clothes sit,
the dust gather.
we'll get to it later,
maybe tomorrow,
maybe another day.
