With soaped-up windows

Scrawled with words

They start their past


Fast along the highway.

Blurred between indistinguishable forests,

Behind watermelon trucks and Mercedes,

Behind boys and dogs with flapping ears waving

Like worn grey flags.

They pass

The Pentecostal Church of God

Where pines rise out of beach sand.

They pass

The sleepy Suwannee

With separate faces pointed

Toward the vortex.

They pass them all,


Along the highway

With soaped-up windows

Marriage is a life-changing comittment meant to last, yet most of us enter into it with ‘soaped-up’ windows, unaware of all it asks of us. May those married couples, and those soon to be being married, have the strength to persevere through the trials that come. And may they also have the exhuberance real love brings.
