35mm film photograph by author

Several states away
she reads
lines of Midsummer
It will be over before
she gets
to return home
She won’t tell me
how she really feels
so I don’t really know
and I, too, read
at home
in the dark

A poem from 2020, from my Medium archive. Funny how parenting shows up in so much of my creative work. . . . Thank you for reading!
