Three of us. All dressed
in brotherly love and smart,
pressed shirts.

One after another
we arrived late.
Fashioned just so.

Bride & Groom

Paused, poised for eternity in this snap
both holding the knife that cut you in half.
Two rare smiles, here on paper, stopped
by the foreverness of bound fingers.

Held together by tape, now, I understand the picture:
For the two of you this was just dessert.
And it's not the tear down the picture that hurts
But I can't figure out which was worse, more fake:

Your marriage or the synthetic couple
on top of the cake.
