cat food

you laugh
and say I’m soppy
when I try to express
what it means
when you
feed my cat
despite your dislike
of the smell of his food
and you keep on
doing it
every day
as one of those things
you do
doing your bit
voluntarily
and to me
this is romance
to me this is real love
not mere flouncy words
not mere hearts & flowers
real love
shown by you
my practical, kind, loving partner
