Instead of Words
On a quiet evening scented by cottonwoods
and river mud, I leave you waving
on the old front porch we still donít have.
I am so sorry, my love. Instead of words,
I should have used a hammer and a saw.
What good are these imaginary creaking boards?
Or my vow to paint the railing when the weather warms?
