In Orbit

They were never meant to grow old
together. They are two planets in orbit.

Look! The sun and moon-
no synergy, no intimacy

multiple personalities, selfish
each in their own mind

My sentences are failing
a perversion of marriage sanctity

digging, fighting each other
not for each other. Not for anyone.

The conversation was not a conversation.
At all. I don’t know what it was.
