Where You Were


I sit here

because you

used to sit here

with me

middle of afternoon

maybe evening 

unassuming place

far from other lives

and other eyes

tiny world

our world

our place

you and me

wine and whiskey

eyes speaking

what our bodies missed

what our bodies needed

knowing the next place 

was where

we’d unleash

what we couldn’t

anywhere else
