Untelevised

He’d spent:
two years loving her
fifteen months dating her
twelve weeks researching diamonds
and twice his budget.

He’d gone:
to South America
to her city
to paradise
then to the family jewelerto the family jeweler.

She was:
everything the cards in walgreens said.
more than he could fathom
a five foot two brunette with puppy eyes and a melting smile
going to marry him.

He was:
sitting in his car
breathing heavily
looking at this tiny box
wondering
wondering
wondering not if she’d say yes, he knew she would
wondering if this band was special enough.

It couldn’t be.
