Marriage

Marriage is not a hostile takeover
Or an equivalence relation,
It’s more like the development
Of a conurbation:

My CD village is surrounded
By your vinyl city;
My teetering book piles
Push themselves
Onto your tranquil shelves.

Health care and education?
Total cooperation.
Restaurant development?
Intense negotiation.

We assume the lines of love
Are isoglossal, falter
At misunderstandings,
Pick ourselves up, re-group, continue
The building process we have undertaken.
