Long Days - Poem by Camilla Keenan Koch

My lover once told me
“I love you, you make the day seem so long.”
and so, with wounded vanity,
but because of his name
for what he meant to me
I took the time
to hear him say
Life is good.
Take time
make time in time.

moments previous.
I saw those trees
now orange lit
nighttime city
when I saw them green
and all white globes
on the other side of my window
winter twig geometry
unwarning,
transformed.

Time inside time
a moment so long/my lover, who told me/
unwritten/what is a day
