Saturday at the Silent Retreat

As I sat down to breakfast
I noticed Love walk in the door
And put a coffee cup
Across from me

I heard Love buttering a bagel
- Love likes it with jam
Wondering how it would be
With Love across from me

I heard Love gulp down coffee
And slurp on yogurt
I wondered if that’s how Love
Would sound between my thighs

I kept my eyes downcast
Knowing I’d be blinded in the light
But I kept Love in my peripheral vision
I kept Love in my sight.
