If there is such a thing as marriage, it takes place long before the ceremony: in a car on the way to the airport; or as a gray bedroom fills with dawn, one lover watching the other; or as two strangers stand together in the rain with no bus in sight, arms weighed down with shopping bags. You don’t know then. But later you realize — that was the moment.
And always without words.
To all the girls who are in a hurry to have a boyfriend or get married, a piece of Biblical advice: “Ruth waited patiently for her mate Boaz.” While you are waiting on your Boaz, don’t settle for any of his relatives; Broke-az, Poor-az, Lying-az, Cheating-az, Dumb-az, Drunk-az, Cheap-az, Rude-az, Selfish-az, Lazy-az or Beatinyo-az. Wait on your Boaz and make sure he respects Yoaz!
mommy.... was I a mistake?
well sweetie, let's just say you turned up out of the blue, uninvited
I see you in colors that don’t exist.
