divorce: second anniversary

divorce: second anniversary

by Lynn Hoffman

she got the cart and then the horse,
she got the friends in the divorce.
he got two pans for baking bread
and the satin sheets-‘though not the bed.

now the horse is dead, the cart just broke,
the friendships? all gone up in smoke.
they’ve both had time to dry their eyes
and he’s waiting for the bread to rise.

refers to the phrase “learn to cook” in Richard Allen Taylor’s poem Domestic Advice to a Divorced Friend

Editor JS Graustein of PicFic challenges that Gone by Nathalie Boisard-Beudin could refer from Lynn’s poem. What do you think?
