Tuck it into folded clothes
cramed tight into carry bags
set it on the dashboard
to rock along with the rhythym
of the road as you find your way home.

Center it in the background of candid shots
captured in pixel flash
while presents are joyfully torn
in a wrapping paper tornado
while the children are eye bright
with surprise.

Slip it inside the pillowcase
between your sleeping cheek
and the soothing cradle
for your faraway dreams
and bring it to familiar bedscapes
to rest beside me once more.

Hang it around your neck
too long and too far removed
from the press of my lonely lips
just underneath the colorful clash
of the shirt I love because
it is just so perfectly you.

Take me into your arms
in the driveway, in the yard
press it into me, chest to breast
lip to lip, eye to eye
and find my love waiting
kept warm for your return.

Smile if you're stupid,
laugh if you understand.
