Calling my wife at work

Can I take you to lunch?
Can I take you upstairs?

I have only an hour
to go where I desire
to be taken; taking time
for longings, for lunch
taking time is tempting
as you tempt me,
letting me be taken to
lunch or taken elsewhere
always hungry
because I am always taken
with you.

The rub here is that I need
to be back in an hour – can
we make this order to go?

Call me when you get this.

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
