From Here to There

She asks me if we can go somewhere on July 14th
It’s just down the street she says
Sounds fine
That’s my reply
A birthday party for a three year old
In two months
Does sound fine
Right now
While I sit in front of the computer
Writing poetry
It might not
On June 13th
It may well sound like a horrible idea
Which is to be expected
It wouldn’t matter where you sit at a concert
Or where you position your speakers in your living room
And those are things that matter
Or at least they are
Once the music starts
Which is why
In the silence of a quiet Saturday night
In late April
I am vaguely positive
