The cue for your next English lesson

You are certain throughout this disappointing, lonely week
while I am dealing with midterms and trainings
that Saturday morning will be ours
the weekly reckoning of our relationship
a day on which you can reasonably expect
your fancy dog food omelet
with carrots mixed in
and a luxurious belly rub
before we explore the deepest recesses
of our local park

But this morning, you are desolate
because I wake up late and have to head
to a mandatory lecture
and because you don’t understand the phrase
Honey, I’ll be back in an hour!
