A Humble Marriage

by Richard Biddle

.

shared cherries from a paper-bag

talking about talking about talking

something in the religion of her eyes

took off his watch and destroyed time

.

borrowed money bought their drinks

shivered warmth into each other

.

days hitching and hatching plans

thumbed pages turned together

 .

at home in no house

they traversed pitfalls and thresholds

 .

traveling light

thunder and lightning

 . 

fuck-fighting with weathered-hearts

breeding poltergeists

 . 

inciting a riot of insight

in every mirror they smashed

.
