Another’s Spouse

She/he has to plot
a re-measured half-life
Side-step a wish-flat world
Navigate every strife

She/he ensures sleep is taken –
re-fills the gaps
She/he has to micro-manage
each low-kerbed trap

Such misrules were never
rung as their wedding vows
A shaken hand – still with her/him
No one else
