Lovely Couples

The lovely upscale couples with their dogs
come dour and dressed for the apocalypse
on paths depicted in their travelogues.

This landing of the far-from-homeless slogs
across the square from alabaster ships.
The lovely upscale couples with their dogs

are not deployed by common demagogues–
a higher occupation never trips
on paths depicted in its travelogues.

Magogs in love with their Magog Agogs
prefer the choker with a chain that slips.
The lovely upscale couples with their dogs

come sometimes bundled up for winter jogs,
but rarely kiss each other on the lips
on paths depicted in their travelogues.

Accustomed to their antiseptic snogs,
and having said goodbye to Mr. Chips,
the lovely upscale couples walk their dogs
on paths depicted in their travelogues.
