March 11-12, 2020


they say that every seven years

every cell in our bodies is replaced

nothing thats there was ever there before

nothing thats been there is there any more

and I thought of you

youve been married to four renewed Petes

are now married to your fifth

Im glad youve loved so many Petes

(Ive loved just as many Beths)

our apartness and our togetherness

remaining untouched by the years

enhance this lovely permanence








they also say that we are of star dust …


… just think of the possibilities …
