Marriage is not

a house or even a tent

it is before that, and colder:

The edge of the forest, the edge

of the desert

        the unpainted stairs

at the back where we squat

outside, eating popcorn

where painfully and with wonder

at having survived even

this far

we are learning to make fire

.: :.

This author, through this poem, is saying that; marriage is something you build from the ground up. You have to work your way up to having a house, which is why the author repeats several time that its like living in a wilderness cause they haven\'t built a home yet. The last line in the poem states that a marriage is built up with both the spouse and yourself.
