The Plot Thickens…

They had fought.
Nothing but this waiting was what they felt and yet somehow, there was more. And now, by agreement, she faces east and he faces west. It’s the space that they’ve promised each other for there’s nowhere else to go.
And so, this waiting has been dissipated by words somehow found and formed while floating on this log. Looking east at the emptiness of sea and sky she thinks of when she once desired his time and resented his money. She had romantically thought of them being rich in time and cash poor -with a small house, a picket fence, and maybe a chicken or a goat.
Although, this realization isn’t what she wants right now.
What she wants is more.

rich time, cash poor
