Calling my wife at work (Valentine Poem #4)

Can I take you to lunch?
May I take you upstairs?

I have only an hour
to go where I desire

to be taken – taking time
for longings, for lunch –
taking time is tempting
as you tempt me,
letting me be taken to
lunch or taken elsewhere,
always hungry

because I am always taken
with you.

The rub here is that I need
to be back in an hour – can
we make this order to go?

Call me when you get this.
