The snorkel was a deal breaker
by Hezekiah Allen Taylor

I could handle the scuba tanks
we're forced to use as end tables.
I can take the dried starfish
nailed in an ascending line
from doorknob to crown molding.
I don't mind the netting
draped in the corner
and holding up our throw pillows.
I even like the Jimmy Buffett Margaritaville blender
that weighs down the South end of the kitchen counter.
But, snorkels and sex
do not mix.
Now get out of bed.
