making time: Dec. 26, 2017 (7:41 am)

time to go home. time to survey the flood. time to have dinner with your mother after she picks us up at the airport. time to take the dog for a walk with your dad around his girlfriend's neighborhood. time to drive with your brother to visit your grandmother in the hospital. time to call my dad. time to call my brother. time to remember my mom. time to remember my grandmother. it's important to my health that i spend eight hours each night alternately wrapped around and wrapped by you. and so: my arms are full; they drove to the falls; only he drove back. whatever else i might have wished, we made each other this way and, i believe, would only do so again.
