December 2013

separation

The month I met you,
there was an earthquake and tsunami in Vanuatu.

The month I moved in with you,
a scallop dredger sunk due to heavy storms.

The month I married you,
a fab four died – cancer

The month our child was born,
there was a festival in the Isle of Man,

The month we separated,
children played around carved pumpkins.

The month I fell in love with you,
an acoustic-guitar-driven ballad which tells
of the end of a romance topped the charts.

—Edward Vidaurre
