Nicole Callihan reads "Marriage."

About This Poem


"Marriage can be difficult; it can change us. Sometimes, though, this change, this bringing together of two separate entities, can be beautiful, much like a compound word. We know the moon, yes, and that it shines, yes, but moonshine is something else entirely. And butter we know, and flies, but butterflies are different. I wanted to play with these compounds, but, ultimately, I wanted to affirm the notion of the individual, the one who has the choice to say, 'I do,' and does."
—Nicole Callihan


Nicole Callihan's new collection, Translucence, cowritten with Samar Abdel Jaber, is forthcoming from Indolent Books in 2018. She teaches at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering and lives in Brooklyn, New York.
