Soul Mates

She told him she had never felt
for another
the way she felt
about him.
That they were soul mates
and completed one another.
That the fates had conspired
to bring them together.
Then she said she thought
she was pregnant.


A jailer will tell you anything
you need to hear
to stay locked
up.


A loving wife is the
same way.


When he left my place
he had his rose-coloured glasses
on.


Feeling good about his chances -
about the world -
like those WW1 infantry boys
the officers got good and drunk
enough
to think that walking
into machine gun fire
was a good
idea.
