Once—no—actually—many times There were two hearts In love With each other But largely Because of logistics and pragmatics Financial statements And fears of Being bad And history And family And Religion and friends And tailwinds and headwinds Of varying kinds They held to their positions And let the time pass.

And they each felt a tear As they Shut their eyes.
