Given as a token of the truest intention, this beauty has seen its fair share of dirt. Little fights over scattered socks and big fallouts over late nights have left behind traces of dust that, bit-by-bit, obscure the patina. Rings like that you gave to me that night in the park date back to the Romans. They’d slip circles of gold onto the fourth finger of a beloved’s left hand, right over the supposed vena amoris that wound its way up to the heart. The luster has faded after so many years, but this vow fits now more than ever. Somehow the maintenance has been left to me, but I’m happy to roll up my sleeves in the name of what we’ve built. This one, this gold behemoth that you presented me with fifteen years in, seems like it arrived already filthy. Unlike the diamond, there were no innocent kisses to pepper it with glossy, sparkling memories. I have to shine this one every morning, but there’s no sweeter work than this. [Kathleen McCampbell]
