30-Day Song Challenge, day 23: a song that I want to play at my wedding

It seems so very unlikely that I’ll ever get married again, but if I do I hope she’ll understand why wedding songs are requiems, why the confession of love cannot help connoting loss, betrayal, rejection. Love is the denial of these tragedies and only the existence of pain can give happiness meaning.

I hope she’ll forgive me this image of the misunderstood clown clutching desperately at a moment of contact with a stranger because he knows it may be all there is in the world.

  1. All I wanted was to be introduced using the end throne theme from Star Wars, and I was. No medals were given out though.

  2. Darrell, I’m in your boat. I always wanted to exit to the theme from Indiana Jones.

    Groom in a hat and Marion’s white dress from Beloch, optional.
