A Husband

He takes out the trash, or makes dinner

thinks he's cleaned the whole house

he's not capable of being quiet as a mouse

full of self-praise

himself, he amaze

selective hearing and speech

sometimes hard to reach

never practices what he preach

loveable and incorrigible

he's not interchangable

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Editing stage: 


we grow like vine trees wound about the soul
of the other
filling in the shadow
where our warmth and light
can be

and yet we canter hauling burdens
catching an eye or a look
aware of what misery has took

I wear your poem
on my heart

Like this one much!
