she and him

12 May

sometimes they find their groove
sometimes they carve it out violently with blades
and words
and whisky
trying to maneuver a standard car on a long dirt road
while juggling is never easy
there’s the spot on the wall
where the wine glass hit
and there’s where he put his fist through two summers ago
it’s been puttied over and smoothed out
there are many other scars that have never healed properly
the house will be passed down
or on
and others will have to be the caretakers
of well-worn walls
damaged foundations
and moldy wood
