Today's poem is by Ed Skoog


when you go
off to work
when you are
asleep in lamplight
when you take the baby
midway through the movie
or have lost your
phone and ask
me to call it
or one of us
runs up to the store
or when I drink
too much and forget
when deadlines
and you wake
searching the bed
for spreadsheets
when I shower after you
the water still hot
