bonus post, tribute # 12 (1.5 length) - C

making out at work, in cars, parks
the unsustainable, is.

mistress phoning the other
"he's with me" antagonizing
50 year affair

screaming matches
on front lawns, police know
neighbours will call

man and mistress with
restraining orders against each other

wife's deathbed?
no clean break, said,
you may have any woman
except her

7 years a widower
still want-hate tangled.

Yuck! And they call it love.... A salutary story, powerfully told. (I love your restraint, always more telling when the drama is in the bare facts.)

well, they mostly just called it wanting. and complicated.

thanks Rosemary.
