Marguerite Bradbury

Who ends up with the memories of a love

when one of a pair passes away?

Surely they will last forever in the skull

of the survivor:

The ring-ding of the door bell in the bookstore

where she stood organizing shelves

and watched in suspicion

the strange man overdressed for a warm LA day

when instead of stealing –

he asked her to coffee.

“I’m going to the moon someday. Wanna come?”

One partner out of chance

one brunette in a long skirt asked to dance

A novel-length romance broken into chapters

titled

  1. Married
  2. Four Babes
  3. Landing On Mars
  4. Catching Moby Dick
  5. Dark Carnivals
  6. Death Becomes Her

You see, she had that smoking habit…
