For E.

E is getting married
Another fort is down
Another wall has collapsed
A frozen statue has finally moved
Its eyes cracking an eager smile
E leaves in the wings of love
that brings convenience and safety
A whole new lipstick is drawn
and stockings, and corsetts
and new rimmed glasses
and shoes with sensible heels
but heels nevertheless
and sparkle
so much sparkle has fallen
kissing her with lips of hope
because E is getting married
whispers of sweet things
propriety, normalcy, pride
walks in the elbow of a man
she found, she culled, she replanted
life starts now
unknown, unsung yet
but it will she hopes
and so she departs
and I marvel
E is getting married
