We were young then
And I was still casual
About you

So this picture in my head is extra
Always so correct
Professional behind the safety glass
No. You actual had an office!
At the credit union so close to
Vital Vittles
…they did spell it that way, didn’t they?

Who writes love letters to future husbands?
Future children in their eyes

You behind the desk
You driving the ambulance
You watching the telemetry of remote hearts

Always you, you would-be
Author of all these ordinary
Love stories that
Matter the most to me
