According to my phone’s calendar today, I haven’t any appointments,
and since it’s synced to work and social media,
I feel it’s safe for me to say
this would be a good day for us to run away.
But, if you’re really wearing that sundress,
I won’t be able to concentrate.
I bet that we could drive to the coast and still get there in time to go
through thrift store record bins before grocery shopping
for everything we will need
for a picnic on the beach while the sun sets into a sea,
like that scene in that painting you’ve been trying to complete.
Put your brushes away my darling, and let’s hang up these phones.
I can be there within the hour, if I drive really slow.
I’m willing to coast, if you’re willing to go.
This would be a good day for us to run away.
