Someday, Your Bride

I thought I knew all about

What I wanted (and didn’t want)

Until you.

Now Pinterest is my playground

Of unconventional wedding dresses

And I want the days

I wake up next to you

To be all of them.

I spill embarrassing anecdotes

With you

Effortlessly;

You ask me hard questions

And I answer you

Honestly.

But putting

Your heavenly cooking

Your sweet words

Your intoxicating flavor

Your lips and hands and teeth

Aside

You happily share

My double bed

With my dog and I

Throwing any guilt I felt

Over stowing her in her crate

Aside.

And remarkably

After 35 days,

The orchid you gifted me

For Valentine’s Day

Has survived.

I water it faithfully

About every seven days;

Flowers and new buds

Reach up for the light

On strong, circular stems;

Ballerinas

Frozen

En pointe.
