This marriage thing – quadrille for dVerse

I am
blotter smudger scrawler
you are
the reader of instructions
the careful butterer of toast
you
measure twice cut once
I
spill the milk I lose my keys I fumble

yet, somehow,
in this clash
we found a way
to build a home

A quadrille for dVerse – the word is “smudge”. Thank you, Mish.

  1. Amazing relationship, a home truly with each other. I admire the creative word descriptions here:

  2. I can relate to this. I’m sure you bring spontaneity along with all the fumbles! “The reader of instructions” really does paint a certain personality type in just a few words. Enjoyed this! ❤
