When I see the perfect couples
in the Sunday Times, all 

with advanced degrees in love
from the Ivy League, looking 

down at me from atop
their big, iced cake, I can

only wonder how we ever 
made it so far, having just

our little let-them-eat cake,
saying I do to that city 

judge in such a hurry 
to the big game, 

he almost forgot us
waiting outside his door.
