target in the race for the Republican candidacy.ostensibly in contrast to Gingrich.The attacks against Gingrich have even extended to his fashion sense.Women’s Wear Daily gave the paunchy former speaker of the House of Representatives a C-minus in its man of the week feature Thursday, saying there’s almost nothing right about his casual shirt-and-slacks outfit.The black belt separating the pastel blue short-sleeve dress shirt from the beige pleated slacks accentuates his less-than-svelte middle, it said, deconstructing a photo of the politician holding a hand over his heart.Trying to be helpful, the WWD website suggested that a dark V-neck sweater would minimize his girth without compromising his accessibility while darker color trousers would be always slimming.a reference to frumpy but wealthy retirees in nothing to clear his name from sexual harrassment allegations that led him to drop out of the race.Rishma Dunlop is the author of Lover Through Departure: New and Selected Poems, newly released by Mansfield Press.Love, Second Time Around: The Zoomer BrideDavid has asked me to marry him.He is 61, has a heart condition, and mortality seems ever-present in my consciousness, while I’m waiting for my divorce to be settled.I think of the husband of my youth, of the marriage bed where we conceived our lovely two daughters.I think of the cradle my father made for his granddaughter, of the intimacy of objects, worn and made beautiful by use and memory.Thinking of marriage a second time leads me to amusing contemplations.I’m struck by the popularity of reality shows about wedding planners and shows like Rich Bride, Poor Bride, Bridezilla, and Say Yes to the Dress.I’m fascinated by the phenomenon of these shows in a love-hate cringe-worthy fashion, astonished by the Kim Kardashian debacle, and the caricatures of bridesmaids in Hollywood chick flicks.After the royal wedding of Kate and William, it seems that the spectacle of the wedding ritual

Esperanza roses, fat creamy blooms, with pink and green tinged edges.I carried their abundance, these roses, through the streets of our city, on the subway and the bus.In a Proustian sense, roses are
