In the beginning
I imagined
I’d be hold up here
with my lover
for weeks
maybe months
watching movies in bed
boiling pots of water
sleeping till ten.
But here I am
waking up with the sun
between cats
grateful for their taking turns
kneading my belly
taking turns on my lap
sitting in any of the chairs
where the church pews used to be full
and I am warmed
by spring sun
on tall windows
that I rush to
at the call of geese.
