I Want I May just Have in mind


what you mentioned that cracked us up
           till we sank again at the mattress
and sighed. Actually, we had been by no means

extra in love than we had been then,
            when the entire chemo, radiation,
the entirety used to be over. We

held palms. From time to time, I’d lean throughout
            to readjust your cannula
that can assist you breathe. From time to time, I’d dream

that we had been drifting down a river,
            neither people noticing
that the river we had been drifting down

had grown too vast to look the shore
            on both sides. It’s only a dream,
I’d inform myself. However goals are how

we trip in the course of the darkish, and why
            I heard the hiss of oxygen—
the plash of waves towards our bow—

when my thoughts became to you this morning,
            attempting to bear in mind, decade
after decade, what you mentioned.
