Cupid’s Arrow

You and I?

We converse in insults

in ‘fuck offs’

and ‘get losts’

some sentences

only half formed,

half thought

punctuated with half-hearted

shift! Move it! shoves.

You and I

know each other



Miss Grumpy Pants

and the prat.

I know your flaws

are no worse

than mine.

We’re eccentric,



and nothing about us

makes it easy

living with someone else.

We’d destroy

any other lover.

You and I


Really dam well.

So next time

I’m snarking,

your barking

and we’re sulking,


you’re the only one

I can bother

to stay mad at

all night.

  1. This reminds me of something my husband used to say, “Love is knowing whose sh*t you are willing to put up with and who is willing to put up with yours.” He was a true romantic, that man.
