And this will be the yearning to be just close
but well out of reach to the course of your day
I'm reminded of my mom's grilled cheese sandwiches
on a wheat stalk plate - decorated with ketchup
I want to eat them with you because you are there
as a lusty reciprocal beat that resonates home
I'll never be sure how often I cross your mind
but I live imagining that I do - from time-to-time.
