They’re in love

them with the cheese in their sandwiches,
then with the cream in their coffee,
them with their laptops, them with their meeting
notes, them with their Pom Bear crumbs
dotted across their meeting notes,
them with their own voices,
them with pointing their fingers at each other,
her with the softness of his hands,
him with the reaching up to her.
