Last day of April,
The kind of day
When evening looks like
To those
Slow to adjust;

As my partner and I
Pull out of
The restaurant’s dazzling
Parking lot, I say,
“It’s so nice. Why don’t we go
For a drive?”

-- Forgetting he has night work
Starting in an hour.

Back at home,
The blazing sun
Still lights up the drawn shades
That face the West.
