The Weather Outside

Your presence impends
as does our conversation
a halfhearted thing
between the mostly content

Me with my words
you with your travels
we’ll kill enough time
to let the dregs go cold

That will be that
till we make plans
to do it all again
when the season returns

Half measures of comfort
returned when it gets cold
brief winter warmers
we wish we didn’t need
