Over their morning coffee (Day 691)

over their morning coffee

his milky and sweet, hers dark and bitter

he chose not to tell her


on their afternoon walk 

under a fluttering canopy of emerald and gold

he chose not to tell her


while doing the dishes

she scraped and washed, he dried and stacked

he chose not to tell her


when they paused the movie

to make popcorn and her favorite hot chocolate

he chose not to tell her
