Dinner For Three - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

she is a doctor and he is a lawyer
looks like they are sweet after three years
of marriage
compatible, super, she says
as she takes a sip of her pineapple juice
while he prefers not beer
but just plain water,

well, he knows more about
asthma and heart disease
but i do not know more about
legal terms, she tells me again,

one time, he tells me
in the email, he cannot live without her
even for a minute

super, really super, this loveydovey couple
i like them

but sometimes, i couldn't help thinking
they are still new on this

trade, this marriage, and still there will be
more storms to come

superstorms

i still have yet twelve years
i and emma, and we still need more storms
to shake this boat

this marriage
and if there are none to come

i will rock it, let me see how anger
makes her more human
and strong and true

and perhaps even more
beautiful,

then soon, when these couple for three blissful years
comes again

it will now be a nicer dinner for four.
