And That’s When

I have loved you at all hours,
but there is something about
3am tonight – that it’s impossible –
that you’re sleeping –
that it leads to 6am –

when there’s an alarm –
when there’s your career –
when the dry cleaning has to
be good for something, right?

Then I realize, I’m right too
often. Because you’ve told me
I always have to be right, and
this 3am, I’m willing to be wrong.
And that’s when I reach for you.
