While this piece from Dwight Gray can be seen as a love poem (of a sort), it’s so much more than that. It’s a meditation on uncertainty and aging, perseverance and emptiness, the ill-defined “edges” of the “marriage bed.”
Editor’s Note: This is not the first time Dwight Gray has appeared on The Good Men Project. Read his poem “Orange” here.
