On Marriage

Some initial thoughts jotted down by A.B. 20 July 2018

Artists treat marriage as a prison.
Yet is not marriage an artform?
    - that everyone can shape,
        rich or poor,
        strong or weak,
        arty or not?

Marriage is a building
    a shelter and mansion
    that all may construct
        work on,
        beautify, and

Marriage is open to all
    whether clever or stupid
    right or left
as a gift and artform
    of university opportunity
a set of shared values
a life lived together
    the longer together the deeper it becomes
    and the more bautiful
even when there is discord.

A shelter for the outsider
a pillar of strength
    for the community
    - supremely worthwhile.
