Pouffed hair

borrowed tux with tails

not really their style


A lone classical guitarist

providing atmosphere

they didn’t choose


The clouds parted and dried

the wet grass

a half hour before the ceremony


A wedding in a rose garden

with an attendant chipmunk


She borrowed her sister’s vows

added something from a book

The sister is divorced now


But their cobbled-together

ceremony has stuck

for twenty years

two daughters

an unwieldy mortgage

the death of her parents

back taxes

and the requisite arguments


They splurged only on the wedding cake.
