We each drove
two hours.
And I think I told you
while lying in bed
in that motel room
that visits like this
are perfect.
A day in bed.
The love making,
showering together,
and Chinese food
eaten on dirty blankets.
I think you agreed.
Things were perfect.
For a whole day.
we drove back home.
Where I am.
Where you are.
four hours away.
