Between Us

(Poem by Wendy Howe )

You think in numbers
and fold the day
into a list

that lines your shirt pocket
with the memory of my hand
washing Malaysian cotton.

So I express love
as I dim the lamp,
tilt the mirror
and brush my hair

into the evening breeze
that carries its lilac scent
toward you working
in the garden.

Your hands finsih
sanding the trellis
and complete the last task --
or maybe not.

Tonight, our bed
is half-full like the moon
and the curtain
has only a woman's shadow
on its mind.
