Assignation

with the terrible license
of the newly-married
her arm was around him
her breast crushed against him
in the intimacy he’d dreamed of
for thousands of years

crushing the moment with levity
he raised his glass to her husband

Copyright David Harley, 1988. A slightly different version was published in Vertical Images 5, 1990.
