For Richer or Poorer (2009)

Posted in Uncategorized at 01:08 by Miracle

…and there are times when being in an affectionate bond
feels like being impecunious neighboring lovers
too poor to sustain ever-afters,
who can only afford to steal glimpses
of each other across a clothesline, sharing fleeting glances
through holes on a tattered sleeve, or in between the inverted “V”
of hung worn-out jeans, and occasionally
through the leg-holes of sagging panties.
One can only wonder… is that sweetness, or poverty?
