What Break Up

(what breakup?)
Our relationship is
under different management
of our own woozy pacifism.

Between oblique kisses;
folding away bones of other loves;
and a new sense of boundary,
beauty is born.

We are young in the old way.
I love the way you wear your face.
What an unbeautiful pair of corpses we are.
