Drive-thru Lightning

Elvis in the chapel
Drive up to window #2
I vaguely recall
We said our “I do’s”
20 years later
Drinking champagne to celebrate
How we caught lightning in a bottle
In that Vegas drive-thru
In our late night, love-drunk state

The prompt is “drive-thru lightning” from Maria Giesbrecht @theguelphpoet on Instagram. April 12, National Poetry Month 2022.

I Changed My Mind

I once said I thought distance was best.
I needed to think, to plan, to test.
My mind changed in no time.
I asked you to be mine,
Now history has archived the rest.

Our wedding day, October 13, 2007.

She Traded The Blues For Greenbacks

The two were joined in matrimony.
No one knew he was a phony.
She welcomed him into her life.
Soon it was filled with strife.
Now she is collecting alimony.
