Minor and Major

He enjoyed cooking
So they’d discuss recipes
Ingredients, spices
Cuisines, flavours and their
Mutual hatred for salads

She played the piano
So they’d discuss sonatas
Bach, Beethoven and Mendelssohn
And whether they should buy a
Cello, guitar or viola

He loved the sofa by the window
It was big, orange with an armrest
Worn out by her sitting on it
While he crooned quietly into her ear
On early mornings and late nights

She loved the potted plants
In the apartment, in neat rows with
Flowers in perennial bloom
Pink and red, in flame
Engulfing her heart, like his love
