Between the troubleshooting

and some cooking

she has lost her manners

between the pearls she joins

together to a necklace

she prides herself of skill

and design.

The poet’s task to clean

the dishes

put away his garb and

brew some coffee about

which she fights the costs

and offers cleaning in lieu.

Yet peaceful coexistence

is wished for and

how to avoids some phases of

a mature life: a marriage that

has come of age –

The poet has erected a shield

of outside indifference

around his creative passion

while his spouse lives on

the sea-saw of his

word-threading endeavours

calling it: Her stress filled life.
