we were married before we met


we were married before we met

we were married before we met
how could I forget
such a simple fact
glowing in every cell
of my body?

we were married before we met
how foolish now to regret
all those years at sea
on seperate tethered rafts
bamboo logs creaking
and the setting sun
bleeding hazy reflections.

we were married before we met
before water learned to be wet
before God nudged the cauldron
of this universe off our kitchen table
before that before and all befores before it
are we.

JR This is beautiful. Your wife must feel very proud to have such a sweet soul in her husband.
