The Reading

This week’s reading is i love you to the moon & by Chen Chen.

i love you to the moon &

not back, let’s not come back, let’s go by the speed of 
queer zest & stay up 
there & get ourselves a little 
moon cottage (so pretty), then start a moon garden 

with lots of moon veggies (so healthy), i mean 
i was already moonlighting 
as an online moonologist 
most weekends, so this is the immensely 

logical next step, are you 
packing your bags yet, don’t forget your 
sailor moon jean jacket, let’s wear 
our sailor moon jean jackets while twirling in that lighter, 

queerer moon gravity, let’s love each other 
(so good) on the moon, let’s love 
the moon        
on the moon

Why We love It

This is one of our favourite wedding readings for dreamers. This is because the poem is extremely romantic, and includes strong metaphors of outer space. The poet intentionally uses made-up words, which adds to the feel that the poet and their lover are in their own world together. The whimsical words of the poem really lend themselves to a wedding with an astrological theme.

If you like this reading, keep your eyes peeled next Sunday and every Sunday from here on out. We will share more wedding readings for dreamers, second weddings, vow renewals, and more.
