Scarlet Ribbon

Nikki wears a scarlet ribbon on her finger

in place of a wedding band

She treasures it,

reminiscing about the night

her husband John put it on her hand

At the time they couldn’t afford wedding rings,

all they had was a spool of that bright scarlet string,

so they each cut a piece of it

said “let this scarlet be a symbol of our love”
