one, words, swollen, warp, bridged, sexual, sweet, wine, dissected, mistaken, thin, minutes.
one of us should speak but,
having swallowed the other's words
we sit, tongues swollen, glaring.
the weft and warp of us tangled
uncharted, these waters. too wild to be bridged
we'd lost what was sexual,
the sweet has gone right off.
the last of the wine is drunk
and dissected to sour grapes and water
we were clearly mistaken
excuses, apologies and love all worn thin
now just counting the minutes to departure
