Wedding band


In a fidget of boredom
I made myself a wedding band
out of a silver candy wrapper.
It only fits on my pinkie.

It looks like the same band I had
when at six years old
I put on my best dress
and married my old dog, Blue.
Dad had to perform the ceremony twice
because I forgot to brush my teeth
the first time.

The marriage was a success:
I loved him ‘til death did us part.

Hahaha I love how you did it twice because you didn't brush your teeth the first time.

RIP Blue.

Aww, that's cute. :) Too bad I never got to meet Blue.
