|Regarding marriage: Whose idea
Isn't each poor shimmering star alone?
Can a nimble munchkin alter at the altar
His/her belief that his/her soul is his/her own?
Is a former frog to die in bit and halter,
Ever disenchanted with a kiss?
A star spins slowly through a field of bliss,
Just so are we the music of a psalter
