WHEN WE COME HOME

a little hush
that i wish
to keep
between us keeps us
true
to the pursuit
of the comfortable rug
that awaits our toes
when we come home
and tosses our shoes
to the door we locked behind us
so that we might just
stumble in after our lazy day
towards the couch
we picked out
because it just
fit us the way our spoons and forks lined up
for a dinner we'll probably sleep through
