In your bedroom
a package of chocolate chip cookies
rests on the unkempt sheets
waiting for you to eat the surviving half.
From the swollen cookie crumbs
in the bottom of a nightstand tumbler
that smells like whiskey
I deduce it will be later today
when you right-swipe
more photos of women
a couple years younger
than the fifty you recently turned
so the money you spent
on condoms is not wasted.
