my new landlord

there was nothing available
after thanksgiving and before christmas
until my landlord called her best friend
to let one of her fire victims in
and she was standing on the porch
with yet another strapping young man
she introduced him as
her latest tenant
when he excused himself
and we went in
she whispered
“I do matchmaking services, too
just let me know-he’s cute, isn’t he?”
i giggled and agreed
after i saw
the one bedroom apartment
she sat me down on the couch
pulled two beers from her purse
and had a drink with me
