from kleenex to champagne &

back again the torrid twister rips

through life with its emotional

whirlwind of idiosyncratic hang-ups

that show their face after a few months &

the inability to compromise on life

choices once dedicated to oneself now

sacrificed to the mindset of two &

the hurricane joins from just offshore

taking a weather made wrecking ball to

all the hopes & dreams that stirred in

the very beginning.


use the kleenex to wipe up the tears &

the champagne to wash down the anguish &

the kleenex to wipe up the blood & the

champagne to drown out the guilty voices in your

head knock knock knocking on the last door left

to that remote place where your sanity still

attempts to breathe.
