The van needs fixing, and the boy doesn’t want to go to school, and the bills, and the paperwork, and the snow, and the appointment, and the dishes, and the laundry, and the floor needs mopping and the and the and the and the.
So I sent you a formal invitation, and took you out just us.
Just a drive in the crisp night, we admire the architecture, and the lights,
and for a moment it is just you and I.
And all the other stuff is just stuff, and it is.
