As the century snarls towards a full stop,
living together is frightening:
the young don’t marry because they’re scared.
I wouldn’t do it this late
but some kids still go the whole shebang,
a couple I love did it on New Year’s Day
in a clearing in the Dandenongs
as hungover as the worst of their guests,
so romantic they refused a gift,
requested a wedding poem, sweet fucking idiots.
