MARRIAGE

Before marriage
he called her a shy swan;
a reticent parrot
and a fragrant rose
enshrouded by
thick white dew-sari

Then the secret was beautiful!

after marriage
…a revelation
…a repentance.
Now he calls her a bi…

Because he realized
like him, she is another human
with the same sweaty skin
and dirty passion.

But she never failed
in her assessment.
Before and after marriage
she holds the same opinion
of him…
‘…an imbecile scoundrel!’

    An elegant take indeed, down to earth….!
    But feel more appropriate would be the change from expectation of a “manageable” scoundrel before to an “imbecile” scoundrel ….! 🙂
