A Singular Repast

We are to each other now
many decades later
what we were the day

we got married, a couple
at the kitchen table on
a summer night—she  

a slice of watermelon,
corners touching the ceiling,
covering my face in juice

and I the corn she butters
before she devours it.
We eat as fast as we can.
