i have never been a very
big fan of the coming holiday;
Valentine’s day just seemed like
an excuse
to feel sorry for yourself, maybe
or to feel obligated, if you’d rather
still, i’m quite happy because
on Thursday night i’ll be
blowing this popsicle stand
and spending the weekend in
St. Louis with Micah.
it’s strange, it feels like
it’s been much longer this time
though it hasn’t been, at all.
perhaps it’s the strangest because
the missing is being masked;
i’m trying not to look
too hard, or it gets too hard.
so most days i just pretend like it’s
all okay.
but it’s getting close, now,
only three days and i’m on my way.
i can’t wait to be there.
