Divorce by Billy Collins

I am just finishing Ballistics by Billy Collins.

Toward the end of the book is this gem of a poem:


Once, two spoons in bed,
now tined forks

across a granite table
and the knives they have hired.

Just finished the book, and that poem jumped out and grabbed me as well. Billy Collins is the best.

My marriage has been completely transformed by the A New Beginning workshop by Dr Itua love spell. I am shocked that so much can be done in love spell by Dr itua and that a marriage can so quickly get on the road to recovery…The resources taught by this Dr Itua love spell really work and can help repair a failing marriage. I would strongly recommend Dr Itua love spell to any couple that is considering divorce. One step will change your life and marriage .
