One bed

For National Coming Out Day 2016 x

To the estate agents who
ask which one of you this one-bed flat is for,
and frowning bed and breakfast owners,
yes the one bed will be just fine,
no mistake,
no administrative error,
just love:
you may have heard of it,
where two people think the world of each other and
when they look into each other's eyes
and kiss each other's faces
there is a balloon of joy in their chests
and all they want is
every minute just the two of them -
a weekend away,
a world of their own where they might hold hands, or
a first home together,
where friends will buy them oven timers and
corkscrews and
bottles of good wine,
and they will sit on floors and toast
to love.
You may have heard of it,
and I hope you've experienced that,
in any way it comes,
and if you fall for your best friend and it
happens to you: you'll know.
The one bed will be just fine.
