Andy Nicholson

from Brian and Max

The sun was out.
Max lay in the sun.
Brian sat on the couch.
“Why am I not happy?” he asked.
Max rolled onto her back.

*

Max lay on the floor.
Max slept.
“You’re a lazy dog,” Brian said,
“You’re useless.”

*

Brian put on his shirt.
Brian put on his pants.
“I have a date tonight.”
Brian put on his shoes.

*

Max sat on the couch.
Brian put his jacket on her head.
Max didn’t move.
“I’m still depressed,” Brian said.

*

Brian walked into the bathroom.
A moth sat on the floor.
“You’re a big moth,” Brian said.
He put the moth in the toilet.

*

Brian and Max left the house.
They walked down the street.
They walked through the park.
“Why don’t I have any friends?”
They walked home.
