A Moment

I open the door and you are there
Your pale blue silk tie is loosened
Your collar unbuttoned
Your hands straddle the frame of the door
As if you have been waiting for hours

There is a moment
You do not smile at me
But I see it in your eyes
You circle my waist
Push me against the back of the door
As you shut it with one foot
One arm holding my hands behind me
The other locking each bolt
Securing the chain
Loosening the sash of my robe

-Veronica J. Dantes
