fast food marriage and divorce

6 Jul

anywhere traffic light turns green and
we all walk side by side down the aisle;
sucked in by the strange smell;
honeymoon in the first few steps
routine as the cement midway island nears
boredom when the other side is reached,
but no regrets as we slip back into the river.

    There are lots of stories in the mud.

    Have you seen the film “Drive”? There was one scene where the female lead tells our intrepid protagonist that her convict husband was released from jail. As soon as she delivered this blow, they stopped at a red light.

    I hadn’t looked at this blog in a long, long time, Steve. This poem is a very clever one.

    I’ve always commented to people, in jest, of course, as to why people have such fancy and expensive weddings when they should save the money for the inevitable divorce expenses!

      and i haven’t been to this blog in a long while neither. I guess we got to divorced as well. I took up bedding down with that Brewers blog and threw this poetry thing in the water.
