When I go to see you again

 

I leave during the night, by train of course

I’ll take a cotton nightgown

Licorice

And a raincoat

 

And you won’t know I’m coming

Until I’m standing on your stoop

Chewing a stick of licorice

Dripping with raindrops

 

And I’ll say

 

I need to tell you a story

Can I stay here the night or shall I come back the next day?

 

When you ask where I am staying,

 

I say

With you of course.
