Syngnathidae

A lone pearl protrudes from her ring
She does not care for diamonds
Her dress is made of coral reefs
She does not care for a white dress
The veil looks as if she is under the sea
She does not care for a traditional veil
Her bouquet includes marine algae and seagrass
She does not care for a rose nor lily
There is not altar but the open sea
She does not care for a big wedding
Her husband is prince charming
She does not care for an average man
Snout-to-snout that touch and exchange
She does not care for hippocampus bargibanti


I thought about making this sound like the Little Mermaid, but then thought it would be funny if they were seahorses. The random inspiration I had to make this poem is hearing on the radio that Pearl Jam is coming to town.

I hope you enjoy!
