Five Years From Tomorrow

will look like forgetting
and small children with eyes
that look like yours
and the miracle in this
will be what is forgotten

in mess and diapers and spouse’s
wandering eyes and tendencies
towards distance despite five year’s
intimacy that should have
revealed the occasions
when the space between needs
to be closed, but some times

the privileged knowledge will be
remembered and hands will be held,
dishes done, children sent in
with breakfast-in-bed and
miracles will be remembered.
