I wrote to my dead friend
That partners were closer than spouses
A partner you can look in the eye

Working together
Is food
Food for thought and nourishment

Watch my back
I’ll hold jiggers for you
Tell me when my zipper’s unzipped

Even if you drink mine
I’ll be the next bartender
Live on my olives

Partners give and take
And care about growth
And don’t steal each other’s nail clippers.

We pardon our partners
Do you know how to whistle?
Just put your lips together and sign here

Bogey and Becall
Liz and Burton
Me with a pipe, all intellectual.

Proctor and Gamble
Sears and Roebuck
You with your emotions onstage
