About Us

My wife and I
are writing a book
About Us
We try and answer
questions profound and sublime
We take on subjects
that help to define us:
The Machismo of Power Tools
The Politics of Lingerie
Some pages are full of laughs
Some are full of tears
We're talking
about twenty years
We're talking
About Us
Way back when
as we stood in that meadow
friends and family gathered
and they talked
About Us
Will it last?
Do they belong together?
What happens next?
Will they be happy?
To answer them now:
I don't know
Most of the time
If they asked
if we still love
each other
I can say
"every day."
That's our story
the one that we tell
About Us
