POEM FOR CAROL ON OUR 30TH ANNIVERSARY

30th

What a happy day
when I noticed it was not absolutely necessary to be
cunning and self justifying
and that if I still am from time to time, I will
not be abandoned and I will not abandon myself.
The small joys, pleasures, the underlying and the aching knowledge
that death will eventually part us,
all fit perfectly together,
like when your right hand takes hold of your left
and you give yourself a little squeeze.
