Is it okay?

Is it okay

if we just sit by the TV

until you find sleep

(you’re always first)

Is it okay

that I lie in bed ’til lunch

that I stack the dishwasher and hang the toilet paper

the wrong way

that I say how I really feel when asked

that I want to read, rather than watch reruns and talk about the cat

…I am here.  With you.  With you.

Is it enough?
