We’ve been planning this for weeks.
Months, really. Years.
And I stayed up too late last night
working on details whose deadline
had long passed us by already.
When I finally fell asleep I dreamt
that I had missed it all, although
I can’t remember where I’d been instead.
When I woke up I wasn’t sure whether
that was a dream come true or a nightmare.
All I know is I’m the one who’s got to choose.
