The Wedding Picture Defense

The moment her thoughts
her desires
her longings

begin ever so slightly to stray
to linger elsewhere

or to question
or to doubt

you'll see the wedding pictures.

(I mean, literally,
you'll SEE the wedding pictures
on public display)


how worthy he is
how much she misses him
how glad she is for him
how many years it has been

it hasn't always been easy

but I have seen the
looks given when he is
not present

and I know
the heat of jealousy
as it spreads
across the room

fuming facial features
with frequent reminders
of previous engagements

mistakes will be made.
