A really good one for this is Tallking In Bed. Afternoons looks at how the "our wedding lying", physically lying on the table or is it because the marriage is a lie? You can see the same image in Talking in bed, with them lying next to each other. Both reflect on time's influencxe on relationships, "the wind is ruining their courtin-place" which is time and external forces removing their memories and their love within relationships. In talking in bed, the same is said. I dont have the anthology but there is something about time passing silently and how it becomes more difficult to find the words to talk, hence a relationship breakdown. Let me know if you have any more questions! Other poems could be An Arundel Tomb, Self the Man, Whitsun Weddings...
