The Writ

Americans marrying abroad have to complete a number of forms:

Chief among them a contract
Defining marriage itself,
A holy writ designed to stem the flow of nature.

For while marrying abroad is considered a paean to order—
The primacy of an almighty creator,
And the nature of things—,
Truly, streams run inexorably toward chaos
And ruin:

Precursors to renewal;
Inevitable circumstances,
Hidden and debased by the pragmatic concerns
Of the deluded American.

    I’m too out of my head lately to really comment on this, but of course I like it anyway. You’re kind of the opposite of me, I think; you seem to get to know me better through my writing, but you just become more unknowable to me through yours.
