8,000

8,000

Miles away

My beautiful

Love

Sits at work

A day

Ahead

Of me

And a world

Away.

The time and space

Between us

Causes

A shift

In the wrinkle

Of reality-

As I say goodnight

And head off to bed,

She prepares

For lunch

And an evening I will not have until many hours later.

As we say

Good night

And good morning

Simultaneously,

She settles back

Into her work

And I shuffle

Off

To bed,

To dream

Of her

And the next

Time

We are face to face and in the same place in time,

Where skin can

Touch

And lips can

Meet.
