I Have Made You Lopsided

"Look at what you've done to your wife."

I have made you lopsided
and it's hard for you to roll over in bed
or slide behind the wheel.
Sometimes I feel guilty about it.
But I am not the one
who arranged things this way.
I'll take my turn when the time comes.
In the meantime, you are beautiful
and I am filled with tender, fatherly feelings-
like fear.
