Love in the End Days

she slept
with an unloaded gun
pressed against her cheek
each morning
she would click it
to see
if she was still alive

he slept
with eyes open
his mind a runaway
ceiling fan
which made it difficult
to tell
if he was still awake

she tiptoed
on bricks of water
trying to conceal her feet
as they were
floating away

he kept
a stained glass face
that disappeared
whenever light
came shining

when they split
all the neighbors
came out
to investigate
in abject surprise
