a perfect place

she moved into a perfect place,

after the golden wedding,

with linen, and a table set,

and perfect floral bedding


but perfect places are not so,

and life’s no fairy tale:

and now she feels responsible

for her life’s ‘epic fail’ —


but courtship was a giant sham.

just how was she to know

that he was not that man at all?

that it was all for show?

One thought on “a perfect place
