701



good things come in small packages

grandmothers of old would say
those days permission requesting

prescribed were letters
for the hand of a daughter
by an anxious suitor

  7. Well done, GC. Formality be damned; we should all just run off to Vegas, let some alleged preacher hitch us up out there on a street corner; invite every passerby that passes by.
