#2,484 Un-couples

Those couples that stay
entwined also derogate
as those failed pairs do –
stuck in quieter games –
a sideways swipe & love
is set aside [‘til nothing
remains of it] – Lift it up
[whisky-ish] to dry lips –
a warm glass-kiss taken
in place of exchanges of
less sweeter drunk-love
& hopeless gropes – See
another couple fall from
their arse-sucking sofa –
see them fall apart – out
of love they unroll – a lie
is set straight [over time
their aim will drop away
& misses a settlement] –
those couples fool us all
