Marriages Last Forever
“Marriages last forever”, or so the bejeweled sparkler shouts.
Diamond dust of fairy tales, fantasy sprinkled on the shoulders of palm trees.
There’s the credo in her hands; sticky seals over government tape.
Little red kisses dotting the I’s, and a spritz of pre-love perfume.
“It’s real! It’s real” she cries,
waving over her HuntMen, leggy sisters, and salvation army.
“Oh when will you stop with your fairytales, darling.
You’re no Princess, just another rich girl from the Golden State.
Put your dollies away”, mother calls, charming the rest.
Love is no price to pay…
or is it “you can’t put a price on love”? Nevertheless, never the less.
