“Hypochondria winking at grime”
As time goes by
the twain shall eventually meet
with scraps of kneejerk iconoclasm
starting to meekly recede
Years of being together
have mellowed my tetchiness
brimful ashtrays no longer call for
scathing versified onslaught
The caterwauling about dripping faucets
not affecting him too much
my hypochondria now winking at grime
in love’s dazzling and menacing world
our hearts melting in its immensity.
