Both flattened:
Biker, bicycle.
Now, heaven?



The Event Between

Two parties
Once coupled as one –
Now, divorced.

In midst of beauty –

When weeds grow up within the cracks,
   Twixt bricks once closely laid,
It matters not how near their backs
   That day when vows were made. 

A careful plan, with counsel’s skill,
   Can go astray like Eve.
A simple matter, can and will
   Breed trouble and bereave.     

Left unattended, weeds can shove
   Strong bricks so far apart,
One wonders whether any love
   Was in the mason’s art.                                   

With man and wife, it is the same,
   E’en when the wedding day
Has vows of an eternal aim,
   Like April wed to May.                                     

But if her course tends toward the east,
   And his drifts toward the west,
The cracks, like schisms, foil a priest
   And spread within each breast. 

And so the tiny little weeds,
    Must hoed or poisoned be,
Else multiply as they proceed –
   A garden’s jeopardy.
