Zz 262 I Married Somebody I Hardly Knew - Poem by Edward Wright Haile
I married somebody I hardly knew.
We hardly knew ourselves, much less … and so
I kept my promises and did my duty
one day at a time; so even though
I’ve wanted other women for a night,
or hated her for when she read my mind,
and quarreled til we proved each other right,
we stuck it out until something designed
came to fulfillment in us and we mated.
I won’t say what it was, only that once
it happened nothing then would separate it.
So we’re a pair of marriage instruments;
and think, since I love her and she loves me,
the stars themselves owe some humility.
