All the Good Ones

Overheard from a radio conversation:
"All the good ones are married... ."

Did you ever think that
they are "good ones"
as a result of marriage?

Not just that
it's somehow easier
to want the unhave-able
but that the process of marriage
hones and polishes like a gem tumbler
so that even the roughest of raw ore
in the daily grind and rub of relationship
begins to be worn
smooth and shiny
like the
tawny topaz?
