Uncoupling Suffocation

Parked in a car looking out on a body of water. A man and a woman think back. Well one of them thinks.

'Remember,' he says,
'we'd walk by this lake
in the evenings,
when we were first married.'

The woman thinks
of the mornings
before she married
when she would run on the sand,
pushing her anxious silence raw
and breathless, stop
cradled by sky,
