Voices, woman-like and mechanical
soft, smooth, full of life and energy
sweet sounds to the ear,
having brought pleasure and excitement
have given way with time
to coughs and sputters;
foreign languages to me.
The touch and smell of a new partner
excite the senses like
the touch and smell of a new car.
Arms and legs like leather seats
each sexy in their own way,
not used for so long
have forgotten their purpose…
no comfort to be found.
Both woman and machine;
once bustling with activity and use
bringing happiness to all
inseparable and dependent sit idle,
both with limited use
happy in their unstrained life
grow weeds and spider webs
to their newfound purpose.
Time, a healer
has become a divider
each partner going their own way;
so much to repair
I do not have
the energy or desire to rebuild.
