wedding announcement
all those years we didn't ask
and they didn't tell

For Bill and Jack

Thanks, M. Unfortunately, the couple to whom I dedicate this will not benefit from the Supreme Court decision, because Jack died a few years ago. One of the nicest couples we knew and, for most of the years we knew them, they didn't tell, we didn't ask.

__Don't tell, don't ask, I see as a metaphor: Don't make a "big deal", we don't make a "big deal".
__Kathy and I have 'close' family members, and friends we've known for years, that don't tell, and there has never been discomfort or lack of caring among us; that's the way it should always be. Sorry for Jack's loss and that he and Bill didn't arrive at this day... together. _m

so sad that Jack died too soon to enjoy a wedding with his life partner.

Excellent haiku

Thanks, Angelika. I'm not sure how to classify it, either.
