Hospitality


Our guests
are gone now,
though it feels
like they might
still be here,
dishes patiently waiting
in the sink,
fans left spinning
in their wake.
We think
they might be
returning soon,
appearing so often
in our dreams,
asking each morning
what we've got planned,
forever saying please
and thank you,
showing how much
they love us,
too.
