MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER

Cocktail party with many friends.
Idle chatter and he begins:

1997 was the year—
I think it was later, dear

our eldest was four—
at least a year more

as I started to say—
dear, don’t delay

We had planned going to Peru—
Sweets, that was you

why don’t you tell them then—
He forgets now, I worry

no, go ahead and finish it yourself—
but, dear, it’s your story.
