  • not NY, not yet DC
    a breath extended
    sits contented
    destination facing

    calm quiets loud talkers
    soothes chapped lips
    stares out the window

    knows that there’s time for it all

    that we’re not quite there yet
    we’re just somewhere near Havre de Grace

    right before restless
    as able as mindful
    and deliberately here

    here with you
    at three months before everything
