overlooking

the poet quoted william james on marriage:
“overlooking, overlooking.” the theologian

wrote docta ignorantia: “learned ignorance.”
the man said, while looking across the table,

“i have to get serious about those things.”
the woman smiled the smile of docta ignorantia

while “overlooking, overlooking” what she was
looking at across the table.
