"Couple #2" by Billimarie Lubiano Robinson - "I'm in love with you / means I got lucky // like losing a map / then finding a road // but I love you / forces life // back into promise / decrepit kisses, conversation // the beauty being sometimes / it works" (Typewriter Poetry)

Here’s another poem for the Couples Series I’ve been collecting. This one came to me during my time in Hawaii, while I was walking around and enjoying the landscapes around me.

One great thing about computers over typewriters is italics. You can click ‘read more’ to see which phrases I italicized…it really does give the poem a different feel.

“Couple #2”

I’m in love with you
means I got lucky

like losing a map
then finding a road

but I love you
forces life

back into promise
decrepit kisses, conversation

the beauty being sometimes
it works

  1. Really interesting to see the difference. Do you prefer it with the italics? I prefer it without — maybe I just felt really concious of “reading” the italics…hmm
