One great thing about computers over typewriters is italics. You can click ‘read more’ to see which phrases I italicized…it really does give the poem a different feel.

“Couple #2”

I’m in love with you
means I got lucky

like losing a map
then finding a road

but I love you
forces life

back into promise
decrepit kisses, conversation

the beauty being sometimes
it works
