exhale


sigh.


and then really,
one must admit 
there are those nights
when she waits
for this moment
the whole evening long. . .

closing their bedroom doors,
lazily lathering lotion 
into her hands,
donning those red silk pj's
her mother-in-law brought
her back from china,
kicking up her feet,
and loving hearing
nothing but the hum
of the dryer.

How nice to have a mother-in-law that travels (and brings back gifts) so often.
