The wives are lonely

the email message says

as neighbors create a modern garden fence,

Straying to the local grocery

for time to speak in private.

Begin a trek, with expectations.

“Is it just a signature?” she says.

A partnership with no definition

by partners left unsaid over time.

A void created with life being caught at the edge.

Unspoken promises not kept,

with the legal agreement remaining in place.

The wives are lonely,

the email message said.
