A love in verse

Darkness is tumbling from the flies

And fills the gloomy wings

Your backstage lover sits and sighs

Remembering many things

Impresses in his part

And not for love of art

The vet could not have been more sympathetic 

The kidney failure being quite advanced

The food ingested would become emetic...

Sonnet: We Argue

We Argue – harmony has some bum notes

Uninterrupted bliss is not our scene

My poems suggest our love has nothing mean...
