Anniversary Waltz

It's your syncopated stomp
at daybreak chasing
the paycheck.
It's the well-rehearsed turn
of your key in the lock
every six o'clock.

It's this pas de deux
we do
to celebrate 34 years 
not floating on a cloud
but on worn and scored
earth beneath our odyssey.

Give me 12,410 more 
everydays
with you
rather than one still-life
bouquet of fragile promises.
