WEDDING

WEDDING

Every wedding recalls every wedding.

I twist the band on my finger.

The groom’s father with his old lover,

recent wife. The steadfast grandparents.

All those promises about fidelity.

How things blend together—

flowers, colors, the musics.

Sooner or later (and may it be sooner)

everyone will recognize our common face
