On the Fourth - Aug. 13, 2021

Seems around our

fourth day apart my voice

hits an awkward octave

some offkey pause

when a cold flame

licks the back

of my throat

and I must

swallow

which

triggers a timer

that starts counting

the aching

till the miles

become inches

then nothing


soon

my love

soon
