Poem: O.K., So I’m Boasting 

Let the record show that years ago I had sex
(more than once) with a salmon fisherman’s wife.
Now that’s not the kind of thing most men can say,
unless they’re salmon fishermen themselves.

But in the interest of transparency
I should add that at the time she was not
indeed a salmon fisherman’s wife just yet,
had not, in truth, yet met the salmon fisherman.

Still, the fact remains: Years ago I had sex
(more than once) with a salmon fisherman’s wife.
And that’s not the kind of thing most men can say,
unless they’re salmon fishermen themselves.
