"Couple #8" by Billimarie Lubiano Robinson - "giggle-ing / groveling / drivel me timbers / i like it you like it we come / sweet nothings / we recycle / our destinies / the lost art of navigation / what else would we cling to / if not each other" (Typewriter Poetry)

I was writing this one in my hostel room when I was interrupted by a visit from a local I recently met. So I put it aside and had a nice long chat with Maui, who is full of all sorts of interesting Hawaiian creationism tidbits.

Came back to this poem today (the 10th) and here’s my favorite version.

“Couple #8”

giggle-ing
groveling
drivel me timbers
i like it you like it we come
sweet nothings
we recycle
our destinies
the lost art of navigation
what else would we cling to
if not each other
