sommes-nous de la poésie?

it will be 
an invocation,
a homework check;
what did we
what have we

it will be
hot meals
interrupted by
glass clinks
and kind words-
some warm,
some cool.

it will be
one of us,
across the room
from the other,
confident and
‘how do they know
that person?’

it will be
a negotiation-
who will
drive there and
who will
drive back?
then compromise
because one of us
took a last
toast for the

it will be
poems of us,
with a shared pen,
a blank page-
are we the
creators or
will it write

it will be
a memory play
taking me back
to our
first lines
and how everything
was prosaic
before i
met you.
