this is the last time,
we say, but we never mean
it. there is no end

to us. first time for
many things but we are not
things. we are lovers.

[pen pals]
only a letter
to bind us together, they
say, but words are strong.

[blind date]
I do not know your
face, but I know your heart and
that, I think, is better.

[marching band]
the world goes by in
cacophonous glory but
we are happy here.
