Fight bitterness with honesty

Here I am, spitting anxiety into
Coffee cups over formica tables —
Building a monument to stevia at the bottom of a
Chipped mug curved in at the waist to
Warm hands and hearts.
These are solo endeavors:
Ordering an appetizer for one,
Championing middle of the bed status on
Summer nights while tangled in
Moderately clean bedding,
Sundays watching entire seasons of television shows
While the sun pours in and families argue
Outside the window for hours,
Creating their own symphony in the beauty of
Human relationships and the discord
That so often festers
When two lifetimes are stitched together
For an unbearable eternity.
Perhaps we just veer towards pessimism
Regardless.
