The Wedding


The people said Amen

and were seated

to hear about what Solomon urged his lover to do

in Spring.

SongofSolomon

The priest tied a woman’s hands

to a man’s hands

and spoke of death.

then someone whisper warbled
above the rustling of paper
how the meek
shall inherit the earth.

then someone whisper warbled
above the scuffling of chairs
how love is not boastful
or bold

how love
is patient
and kind.

processional done
readings done
ceremony and exchanges of vows
and rings
promises
and
proclamations
and pronunciation
of marriage
done
the recessional passed by while

the overwhelmed bride
was weeping, while
the overjoyed groom
was beaming, and though
the overwhelmed bride
was weeping
the groom
was by her side
to hold her
steady.

A roomful of people ate wild game.

Old men drank wine.

China plates fell and broke.

Priests laughed.

Children danced.

Deacons lit paper on fire.

BurnedMenu

By the time I found my coat
the street sweepers were out

by the time I found my way out
dawn was just hours around
the curve of the earth

So I stepped off the curb

and humbled me home.
