Then I woke up…

he came out of nowhere

and stayed 2 nights, only

2 nights

that lasted forever

fairy lights and candles

lit

in fine porcelain cups

our bedroll of blue and gold

on the big black tiled floor

and the rain

clinging

to the window pane

a three legged

black and white cat

sipping milk

from a pink

Royal Albert saucer

then my orders came

and he had to go home

the following year

a son was born.
