We Will Think About It Tomorrow

A poem by Paola Moretti


We will think about it tomorrow
The rain will pour on our empty shoes
outside the house.
The city shivers.
you do too.
I want to sleep in and tight.
Letโ€™s leave our doubts on the chair
near the desk,
we will wear them in the morning,
like dried up clothes
from yesterdayโ€™s storm.
Donโ€™t say a word,
Iโ€™ll do the same.
Drops run down waterproof sleeves
I watch them hover before splashing
onto the floor.
Come over,
take your coat off.
