In Dependence

wedding shot 001 

Got married

by the JP

on Wednesday,

July 4th,

1973,

because

it gave us

a long

weekend

honeymoon—

tearing up

a sweaty

double bed,

two squeezed

in a trailer

house tub,

drinking

cold duck

from paper cups.

 

35 years

later we

attend 

my niece’s

wedding

on the Bitterroot

River, toast

the young

couple with

champagne

and hope

they discover

the key

we found

for longevity

together—don’t lie

to yourself,

and never lie

to your lover,

you’ll weather

any shit

if you’re true

to each other.
