Twenty-three years

we’ve been unpacking

each other by layers

glitter-gilt wrap

tissue paper

crumpled newsprint

piled useless-useful things

broken and mended

with tender fingers

tearing words


we keep going on mere glimpses

of that priceless gem at box bottom:

bountiful soul of this marriage
