So the latest in a series of poems for my fella is this…it may not be done yet, I’ll allow for that. It is one of those “unfolding” poems, much like the journey marriage affords us…


I know your language.
It echoes this
certain fluency of
long forgotten accents-
the rounded “o”
the rolling “r”
action words in agreement
past perfect and
future progressive
so that one is always,
in essence,
looking back
over one’s left-hand shoulder
while still
moving forward.
