the wedding rice

Still eating the wedding rice
months after the big day.
Not that we needed to, mind you,
there was just so much of it,
a year’s supply maybe.

Remember the night we spent
filling tiny sandwich bags,
neatly wrapping each with crisp
yellow ribbon?

It’s not hard to imagine
there’s still a lot of sweetness there,
cooked into these pearly grains of rice
saved from the summer,
so full of promise,
so full of love.
