Divorce Avoided

(Published at The Writers Club)

In each other’s faces
our fists thrash,
screaming incomplete
thoughts that course
shivers through our veins
instead of speaking healing words,
we tell the other to drop dead.
Split our shit in half,
place the house on the market,
and play tug-a-war with the kid
you’re soon to have.
Or we could rest our minds,
embrace growth over time,
sleep in different rooms,
remember why we fell in love,
and sit on the porch, rocking
while retelling memories of
how we worked it out.
