Trophy Husband

Trophy Husband

written by: Christian Ward

 

My ex-wife once called me
a trophy husband.
What award was mine?
Foolish husband
Patsy husband
Loyal husband
Good father husband
Easy to cheat on husband
Depressed husband
Mentally ill husband
I squatted on the mantlepiece
most days and waited
to be dusted, feeling the rust
coming through my skin.
She never noticed – was already
making space for the next one.
