Day 13: "The Argument" by Michael Waters

Having covered a poem about boundaries yesterday, I think "The Argument" by Michael Waters makes a good follow-up.

Against my expectations from its title, most of the poem describes how a couple stays happily married though living miles apart, thanks to a weekly date night via Skype. Only in the final stanza does the speaker contrast this example of long-distance togetherness with his own romantic woes.

Here is the full 30 Days of The Five-Two schedule. —Gerald So
