Habitation

weather: mainly clear
outside: 22°C
mood: calm/thoughtful
Marriage is not
a house, or even a tent

It is before that, and colder:

the edge of the forest, the edge
of the desert
the unpainted stairs
at the back, where we squat
outdoors, eating popcorn
where painfully and with wonder
at having survived
this far

we are learning to make fire.

          — Margaret Atwood
