I ask them about
their wedding day.

He remembers asking
Harold to borrow
his Hudson Hornet
for something. She insists
they had her Daddy’s Jeep.

He asks how many
months they’ve been
married. She says,
Almost 63 years.

He responds, No, months.

I intervene with math:
(62 years x 12 months) +
December, January,
February, March, April,
and May, this time around
the sun gives you 749.

He says, That sounds about right.
