Strangers Once More


we were completely

into each other

or so it seemed

we were solid

and sang from the same sheet

sweet – the way angels ought to sing

we consummated our thing

in the conventional way

as approved by the state

at the local registry office

witnessed by strangers

we made promises

we could not keep


we had the paper now

a sign of our commitment

but you can’t build a home

from paper

we gave it our best shot

but our efforts fell

well short of the mark

we parted as friends

one dark October morning

but even that did not last

and we ended as we began

strangers once more.
