A Marriage of Sorts

There was a billionaire
who appeared as a dazzling series of zeros.
He placed coins on our tongues.

There was a poet
lying on his back in the grass
his eyes eaten by clouds.

There was a woman
stitching a novel on the walls
of her heart.

There were two young people
rubbing an idea together
& producing light.

There was
the wind & farcical sunshine
on the green brow of a hill.

& perched
on the edge of the stage
two women in wheelchairs

who were delighted
by the man going by
on a unicycle.
