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.
