the fridge, ironing
the dinner napkins,
folding and unfolding
the sheets, trips to the

meet in the backyard
for a breather,
holly-hunting

might as well
take a bite

i have lost
count the times
i’ve had to
fold love
into a
semblance of
a friendly
gesture –
a thoughtful
harmless thing,
considerably
accommodating,
just the right
amount of
attentive – no
more than the times
you’ve understood
