Marriage

  • 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.
