Engrave this Quote My wife and I lived all alone,
contention was our only bone.
I fought with her, she fought with me,
and things went on right merrily.
But now I live here by myself
with hardly a damn thing on the shelf,
and pass my days with little cheer
since I have parted from my dear.
-Robert Creeley, Ballad of the Despairing Husband Tell a Friend
