A wedding that is impossible to avoid having to attend, for any combination of the following:
  • Immediate family
  • It's really close
  • When you RSVPed your month was clear, and the fact that all of a sudden you have three to go to in three weeks doesn't change anything
  • You're a 'group representative'
  • It's yours

...or any other immediate reason. Essentially, this term is typically used when the attending (yes the verb) of said wedding will cause some sort of suffering, even if (in the abstract) the invitee really wants to go to this one.

Remember?
Said "bye" by that wishing well,
you wishing well
to me
, and me to you.

That didn't last.

I felt like
Burroughs playing William Tell,
oh William, tell
her, "put that apple on."

And I insist.

Shot away.
Missed her forehead by a bit.
We buy a bit
of land in Tennessee.

Missed her, dead on.

Little grave.
A small house for us to live in.
Yep, two livin'
folks, 'cept for her and me.

My aim was off.

Apple cored,
head intact. The wedding, had.
Our wedding had
killed both us just the same.
