for bitter or worse

A_small_cup_of_coffeeHe and she

received a shiny black coffee maker

as a formal wedding gift


she, for he,

brewed a steamy pot every morning

as a dutiful wife


he, for she,

drank his morning cuppa joe

as a faithful husband


she, then he,

admitted (after the first anniversary)

that neither really cared for black coffee


he and she

hid the coffee maker in a back cupboard

and poured orange juice for breakfast.
