does not call
has disappeared

best case scenario is
she has found love
lies curled up
his muscled arms
wrapped around her
asleep deep
into morning

for last night they loved without end
it was love at
first sight

it was perfect
he is the
(her phone
switched off, unnecessary,
suddenly a distraction

her last thought before sinking into sleep
this sleep with him so
intimately shared
deep deep
profoundly deep gratefulness)
