husband paints hallway. wife makes bread.
run in the cold grey. sunday market mostly abandoned. the oyster man stands beside his baskets, waiting. past the big catholic church, too early. silent. breakfast of kugelhoff and strawberries, eaten standing in the kitchen, still dressed in running clothes. husband paints hallway. wife makes bread. wife looks around chaotic apartment, everything moved around, dust, ladder, plaster flakes. this is how he wants to spend his weekend. who is she to complain (out loud). she finds a corner of the couch, opens book. the sun comes out. happy easter sunday.
