Half-eaten Plum

I have tried to write us into the third person for this Passover mitzvah

He for you, she for me

“Do you take this man? Do you take this woman?

Some iteration of a

long-ago covenant made and broken in a garden

Careful to avoid her gaze as you give her sour fruit

Mixed with all the other intentional elements of our redemption
