"Stories About Love / Wedding Poem for Ada & Lucas" by Jason Schneiderman
"This poem was written for the wedding of the poet Ada Limón and Lucas Marquardt. When Ada asked me to write a poem for the ceremony, I was both intimidated and honored. The first drafts were about what I know of love—because my poems usually start when there's a truth I can't tell in prose—but those drafts were all terribly flat. I started thinking about Plato's Symposium on love, and how I love the story told by Aristophanes, even though it's become a bit of a cliché. Marriage is an institution with a history, and as I began to think about the ways that love has been personified, explained, and understood, I realized I could put the particular and the universal in tension." —Jason Schneiderman
