Heart-shaped Pillow

a villanelle Who has fallen in love with the couch? Who remembers the days of sweet romance? Maybe Miss Piggy and Oscar the Grouch. Hub spends much time napping, as I can vouch, more than with me. A date night? fat chance. Who has fallen in love with the couch? I think he loves me; if I ask, it’s ouch - he cannot believe I’d ask in askance. Yes, I’m Miss Piggy; he’s Oscar the Grouch. I spend much time nagging him not to slouch. In public, we smile, hold hands, and dance, but he’s fallen in love with the couch. There’s a secret valentine at our house this February; I know in advance. Gift for Miss Piggy "from" Oscar the Grouch. A heart-shaped pillow, a kind of a pouch to hold my dreams as he snores in a trance. Now who has fallen in love with the couch? Miss Piggy who loves her Oscar the Grouch. written 5 February 2016
