Another BMW20 poem for you:


Cory first kissed his wife at ten,
against the lockers, or at two, in the sandbox,
depending on the needs of the episode.
He was engaged before he graduated
high school, married in his
sophomore year. Three kids
in his thirties. If television is the true
mirror of our lives then romantic love
has passed me by, did long ago,
and I sat up nights at fourteen years old,
lamenting the old spinster I’d become.
