nightmares

in my nightmares
i’m on my third wife
in the endless pursuit
of the perfect love
forty, with a respectable gut
and when the divorce proceedings
go through
as they eventually do
i will realise
that i was never meant to love
only to write about it
and i will sit in an empty house
and pour my heart out
to a dwindling audience
of people who used to care
and i will spew
with the same clarity
and the same goddam passion
that i had for love
and i will convince one person
love is dead
