Marriage Is Not A House

Everything Must Happen

Marriage is not
a house, view or even a tent

it is before that, anesthetist and colder:

the edge of the forest, the edge
of the desert
the unpainted stairs
at the back, where we squat
outdoors, eating popcorn

where painfully and with wonder

at having survived
this far

we are learning to make fire

— Margaret Atwood


Happy 20th, Kyle. xo
