The wedding

She walks down the aisle
the same way they all do
and all those women
the thousands today
and the millions before her
are beside her
yet also erased
for she is inside the belly of her moment
so triumphant
there is only room for the shallow rise
and fall of her breath
her mother’s arm
faces shining back at her
all of us so optimistic
and he is in a top hat
playing the standup bass
waiting for her to land beside him
and he sings
can’t help falling in love
we beam
giddy with emotion
because forever comes true
and the world will sew up its wounds
inside this moment
let it last a little longer
this floating
this gluttony
for hope.
