WEDDING UNDONE
(4/10/16)


I'm standing
upon
the same spot

exactly
eight years
after our vows
were exchanged

those promises
so fleetingly
forgotten

searching
for a new incantation
to reset
that wedlock
karma

some
anti-marital
mantra
to jumpstart
this new version
of a single life

I stand here
not knowing
what to say

much
as I did
the first
time

better
to depart
in silence

words

and the
lack
of them

were the
problem
all along
