A Nodeshell challenge from Byzantine

We drove from the apartment

that held the kitchen table

where I first told her I loved her

to the mall

but we didn't go in

She made me sweat it

for two weeks

but she had to do the right thing

what is good is not always right

and what is right is not always good

it made me wish we'd seen it in earlier days

when we were both in the sun


here in the brilliant sun we jostle

jockeying for position

so that we can see each other

more clearly

so that we can kiss before dusk

touch before dew

sleep before dawn
