Honeymoon

When a time comes
that a quiet dinner at
home is perfect enough
a tv may do most of the talking
but you shake your heads
at the same bad news
chuckle at the same absurdities

You remind each other
of tomorrow’s requirements
foot rubs and neck tweaks
are given unbidden
and you take turns telling
each other to wake up
and go to bed

but neither goes
until you go together
because together has
always been the point

The uninitiated might say
the honeymoon is over
but you can smile, assured
the honeymoon has endured
