Proposal – Tom Vaughan

        Let’s fall in love –
In our mid-thirties
It’s not only
Where the hurt is.        

        I won’t get smashed up
Should you go
Away for weekends –
We both know

        No two people
Can be completely
But twice weekly        

        We’ll dine together
Split the bill,
Admire each other’s Wit.
We will

        Be splendid lovers,
Slow, well-trained,
Tactful, gracefully

        You’ll keep your flat
And I’ll keep mine –
 Our bank accounts
Shall not entwine.        

        We’ll make the whole thing
Hard and bright.
We’ll call it love –
We may be right.
