All The Tiny Pieces

Marriage has nothing to do with a raspberry except the way it's all bumpy and fuzzy when you run your fingers over it. When you pop it in your mouth it's so sweet, a kiss, and my tongue rolls around it, not wanting it to melt too fast.

marriage is a raspberry, bumpy and sweet, sometimes falling apart, all the tiny pieces in my hand.
