The Significance Was Obscure - Creativity Catcher

We’ve been married thirty years
he told me.
to what do you attribute your marital
success? I asked.

we both roll the toothpaste tube
from the bottom,
he said.

the next morning
before brushing
I rolled the toothpaste tube
from the bottom.

of course, since I live alone,
the significance was
obscure

as it usually
is.

—Charles Bukowski
