a love poem

in bed the sun is

up but we wait

until the absolute

last moment to

make coffee you

bring coffee we

drink coffee you

say look then you

say look over there

i say what you say

look i say where you

say there i say

here you say no

there so i look

i say there you

say no there

so i look i see

i say here you

say yes you say

yes here i look

here i say yes here

you say yes i look

you say what

do you see there

i say here you say

yes here i see that

the sun is up and

there will be no end of us
