The ways we are not Kim and Kanye

There are many ways
my husband and I are not like
Kim and Kanye

we are not famous
or particularly fashionable

we live in a duplex
and drive dented cars
and I own no eyeshadow at all

but perhaps our biggest hurdle
is that our couple nickname
would not be cool like Kimye

he is Pete and I am Sam
so ours would be Pam

which is enough
right there
to preclude us

but as Kimye dissolves
in front of millions

I cherish the freedom we have
to live our frumpy highs and lows
with no one but ourselves
watching.
