I enjoy his company
Riding shotgun
Conversation
No one to overhear
Our inside jokes
Or companionable silence
As scenery slides by
I study his profile
He pretends not to notice
Desperate for his attention
I chatter about my day
He reaches over
To hold my hand
Or squeeze my leg
In that moment
I don’t feel alone

(2014)
