I Do

Andrew asks of strangers

whether they are married;


if they say ‘Yes’, he’ll ask them

who they’re married to

and if they answer ‘No’

he will ask ‘Why not?’


but if a loved one poses

‘Andrew, boy, who loves you?’

hoping he’ll come back

with  ‘Mum’ or ‘Dad’ or ‘You!’


he looks away and effortlessly answers

‘Me! It’s me. I do!’
