Marital masquerade


same house

no home


same kitchen

different food


same roof

separate beds


same constraints

diverging views


same hurdles

different angles


same kids

opposing instructions


same sofa

back to back


harmonious in public

enemies in private


praise in the face

bullets in the back


silent outwardly

cursing inwardly


close bodies

distant hearts


same family name

secret pseudonyms


same real life

discrete virtual lives


common destiny

polar opposites


united

each on his own


together

alone


masked

unmasked.


wedded

unwedded.
