You always take out the trash

I never had to ask
I never say thank you
But I always think
How nice
How does he do it
Always remembering

Back then I thought marriage was square
Now I know
It’s not that it’s round
It’s that it’s a giraffe
Giraffes fight with their necks
Giraffes hug with their necks
The difference is intent and intensity
Oh and it’s dimensions and life force
Don’t forget

Maybe I expected flowers on Valentine’s Day for life
I never thought about the trash
But what would I rather?
A) flowers annually
B) someone who takes out the trash, 3 times per week, every week, without being asked
