Nova Scotian

Elizabeth Bishop
believed that
'the art of losing isn't hard to master'
and thought poetry
an unnatural act.
Most people think loss is a disaster
more or less - from dropping
keys in a river to being a refugee.
Following a referendum in Ireland
homosexuality and marriage between
people of the same sex
is no longer to be regarded
as an unnatural act
in four fifths of the island.
The most unnatural act is shopping.

Can two married gay men go shopping without the fear of being perceived as unnatural?

Who would know that they were married ?
