At least infinity stands off

At least infinity stands off,

makes room in the back of

the closet for another

pair of shoes, an old

umbrella, our clutch of

tight memories.  Years to

list become, like a baked

cake, no longer separate,

but melt, mesh, cohere

into the sweet taste of

shared lips.  -Jon Ciliberto

Thanks to Georgia poet Jon Ciliberto for this poem celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.  During the AJC Decatur Book Festival, several poets set up a booth and demonstrate their talent.  Since it was the weekend of our anniversary, we shared a little bit about our 25 years and this was the result.
