tomato seeds

tomato seeds on the counter
evidence of the dinner cooked the night before
coupled with two bottles of red wine per person
us arguing over who would clean the mess in the morning
forgetting our points, losing track of reason
finally giving in and fucking right there
on the table
elbows in the marinara
knees in the linguini
my new dress ruined from the coffee in the tiramisu
hours later waking up on the dining room floor
seeing you adorable with cucumber in your hair
bread crumbs on your face
i creep into the kitchen
fill the sink with soapy hot water
