    Great one, Bryon. I like the way lines 1 and 3 mirror each other. It rings a bell:

    hand in hand
    with my shadow—
    divorce day

    Funny, but not without depth. A divorce is the death of something.

    final decree . . .
    not quite sure when
    it began

    Finality, of both sorts. Very effective.
