We are here to witness

his deep breaths, shifting
feet, light chatter with the boys.
While we wait 
for her 

they play 
a documentary-peek through each other’s eyes;

the first date dark sunglasses 
her laugh (no one ever sees) 
proposal in the west end 
studio – curtain 
into narnia, he stands

waiting among conifers in december snow
blowers, a single rose, bent
knee.  She said… 

‘Ladies and Gentlemen, please be up…’

standing
beside my beloved 
five rows back. Thank God 
I’m on this side
of proposal.
