KEBAB SHOP PROPOSAL

they got engaged in a kebab shop
the proposal undercooked
their relationship dry and chewy
I guess it wasn’t so much that they
weren’t in love
but blinded by the idea of it
he has the menu in his hand and looks at her
moving pound coins like draughts
across the checkerboard table
and he thinks
here is perfect     it’ll make her day
she can’t afford to go large on fries
so how about I go large on love
it doesn’t cost anything
except it does
see if my love made a proposal without
a rock that could slash throats
he wouldn’t have understood what it meant
to be with me all that time
ungrateful and materialistic
yet secure and never satisfied
they got engaged in a kebab shop
but didn’t realise
they got engaged to kebab shop life
