History says

you won’t bring flowers on our anniversary.

Or chocolates wrapped in cellophane

heart-shaped boxes.

History says

you don’t do surprises or make ahead

romantic plans.

History says

you’ll trim toenails

when I’m too pregnant to reach.

And when my mind refuses sleep

you’ll whisper me old

favorite camp songs.

History says

you’ll reinvent pasta

any day of the busy week.

And that you’ll stop us

in a moment’s rush

to seize a fleeting kiss.
