poem of the day 11.20.10

beautiful couple

they are a beautiful couple
sitting there
playing the smith’s on the juke
giggling like children
texting each other
from one seat away
hugging
her hands up and down
his back

the way that she plays
with his hair
is oh so romantic

they are a beautiful couple
gazing into each other’s eyes
sharing shots and pints of beer
caressing each other’s face
searching for each other’s souls
in a such a black and awful world

simply a beautiful couple

i wonder if his wife
will feel the same way
when he comes home for dinner
smelling of her generic cigarettes
and cheap perfume.
