There and Then


I walked straight into a dust
storm ten minutes out and
walked back and that was it

my gear and I were covered
with grit so a shower before
dinner was in order then I had

a sandwich and a jigger of
scotch to watch Endeavor by
my adventure didn’t end there

One Endeavor and one scotch
was my limit so I worked on
my writing notes stuff until I

started to think about you
I was reading notes about
first century Rome and Judea

and the like when I realized that
if we were alive then nothing
would have changed

I would have still been looking
for you and waiting for you to
arrive on the next camel

(gotcha dearest read on when
you stop
laughing)

I would have loved you just as
I do now and missed you the
same wanted you the same

only I would have loved you in
the there and then just like I
love you in the here and now

camels or no camels it still
adds up to always
