Love Poems for Married People
by John Kenney




Overview -
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Based on his wildly popular New Yorker piece, Thurber Prize-winner John Kenney presents a hilarious collection of love poems for, well, married people.

Full of brilliant wit, dynamic energy, and a heavy dose of reality, Love Poems for Married People takes the poetic form, turns it upside down and leaves it in the dishwasher to dry. Inspired by one of the most shared New Yorker pieces of all time, this collection captures the reality of life once the spark of a relationship has settled--and hilariously so. With brand new pieces that cover all areas of married life, from parental gripes to dwindling sex lives, Kenney's wry observations and sharp humor remind us exactly what it's like to spend the rest of your life with the person you love.

I was almost feeling fondness for you
As you gave me a shoulder massage at the sink--
What a small, lovely surprise.
And then you grabbed my boobs and made a wha-wha noise.
In an instant, I felt disgust and sadness and regret.
