It is nothing that they did
Or could have helped, two people
Falling in love. Not even
Because they shared a toothbrush,
Once. It is their germs
They take turns being sick
–one makes the tea, the other
answers the phone. Slowly,
they can’t tell better from worse.
This goes on
Until one dies.
Living With It, by Craig Arnold
This picture is clearly more “for better,” but I have missed the “for worse” part of marriage,too, these last four months. I am ready for Honeydew to come home.
