This Is Just To Say

last night I wanted

desperately to make love.

I wanted you

but after hours of unrolling

the starchy burlap of curricula

I was all but consumed.

Forgive me

my love, but I could not

so I settled for the warmth of your palm

running along the length of my spine

and my nose buried in the sheets

that smell deliciously

of us.
