Etsy Typewriter Poetry Poem "Couple #1." Dutch angle against midnight blue and white baroque card stock.

Normally I hate strongly dislike watermarks, but this one is starting to grow on me. The wonders of Photoshop!

“Couple #1” is the first in a series of poems called “The Couple Series.” It was conceived when–following a breakup and other intense life stuff–I somewhat impulsively decided to fly to Hawaii and backpack through the islands. Away from the mainland, I wrote all sorts of poetry about real couples I would witness, my previous relationships, and fictional couples I’d get to know while walking by myself along the sand.

Must've been winter
when we last laughed
