What It Is


That is what it is;
I am no single guy –
if I were there’d be no
remonstrations, no
needless rotten eggs
of vapid accusation

The Cognoscenti
understand I am a
just un-married man
with a bride’s other
druthers undenied
entirely sacrosanct

If sanity is sanctuary
compounding concrete states
of nuptial singleness – we’re
married yet we ain’t, although
for sure the reins as such
remain in place
