    I cant believe you showed up.

    I was about to leave this place:
    make the great dash without grace,
    trailing, like a kite’s tail, someone’s

    lace, and tripping over the sum
    of your friends plus faces come
    to see me land in arms, not crazy

    alarmed fleeing down aisles, run-
    away groom got miles in to
    imagined futures before he noticed

    you finally coming, my princess, the one.
