Donna Carnes - Walk On

You walk on
still beside me,
eyes shadowed in dusk;
you’re the
lingering question
at each day’s end.
I have to laugh
at how
open-ended you remain,
still with me
after all these years
of being lost.

I carry you like
my own personal
Time Machine,
as I put on
my lipstick, smile,
and head out to
the party.
