For better or verse - Three riffs on marriage

.1.

We fought
sitting together on that journey.
The old lady opposite
thought we were married, because
we fought
sitting together on that journey.
They must be married.
See, they’re fighting.


.2.

in five years
they’ve run out of things to say
two children
and not much else in common.
if that’s what happens to love
i’m glad i’m still alone.


.3.

Sex
And a warm meal
Kids
And a home loan
Ties
And what?
