I knew you on Monday
loved you on Tuesday –
by Wednesday
you’d taken ahold of my heart
Thursday was pancakes
and warm maple syrup
By Friday – we planned
for the pulling apart

Saturday came
with the crushing of thunders –
erasing my fears
with your charms
Sunday I swore
you were nothing worth keeping
but laughed
as you rolled in my arms

A week of forever –
a lifetime made over
to fit in the place where the lies
used to be
Smelling of cedar
I kept every treasure
and wondered if ever –
you’d happen to me

Splinters and sweetgum
stars for the taking
Wrap me in Monday –
the first I dreamed of
Tell me you’re leaving
but stay for the morning –
lest night make you someday
the Tuesday I loved
