late nights of value

20110411-104153.jpg

pink plaid skirt

and Lenten regrets

hoping neither are noticeable

living deliberately

and drawing washable obscenities on red sports cars

your feet buried under my birthday quilt

our eyes sticky with the hour

he sticks his head in out mini hallway

and chastises us

we wouldn’t spend our late nights

in a dark room

wasting our time

and he doesn’t understand

that what we do now

actually has value

beyond red shoes and gossip queens

religion and spirituality and wildernesses uncharted

draw their plans over my coverlet

as we trace our toes over them

and ponder the plausibility

of enlightenment
