"Just Married" signs are so
wonderful to be seen
on the back of a car
speeding down the highway
to a destination
unknown by onlookers.
The direction only to be determined
by those within the confines
of the moving metal box
guided by both the confines and freedoms of marriage.
Straight from the wedding:
so many tissues at the ceremony,
empty glasses at the reception,
smears of frosting on the clothes
they might never wear again.
Smiled cut thtough tears
that can only been seen as joyful
as the car speeds down the road
on the way to the honeymoon
chosen by those in the confines of the moving metal box.
The moving metal box
speeding down the highway.
Everything inside is what matters
to the new wife,
to the new husband,
to the highway,
to the end of the road,
and the paint on the back window tells the reason why.
