I Don’t Know What Love Is
The ceremony took place
during the hottest part of the year,
and was performed in an office
in the Criminal Justice Building.
I think that was followed by cake.
I seem to remember doing a lot of climbing.
Whichever, there were rocks and there was steepness,
but no actual mountains
were harmed in the filming
of this marriage.
There were arguements, cats,
Christmas trees. Combinations thereof.
There were step-
children, variously. But they did
survive. All a bit strange,
but that is what it means
to be human.
Now we’re older than dirt,
it’s the hottest part of the year,
and we’re about to buy a house
in the country, across
the road from a zebra-donkey
and a ram with
a scrotum like a grocery bag of melons.
I don’t think we know what we’re doing.
First thing, though, is to build a ramp.
