"...thm rmght thmng"


We were brushing our teeth in the little hotel bathroom
In the luxurious Presidential Suite
At the Anniversary Inn—

The first time that we brushed as a married couple—

Mister President and his First Lady

With a mouth full of toothpaste suds, I said,
"Wm dmd thm rmght thmng."

She agreed

I smiled—
Then spat

(We flossed as well)

We were stuck in that awful place between "tired"...
...and "restless"—
Excited...
...but sleepy

My heart was full

Later, I turned the bust of Abraham Lincoln around—
Away from the bed that creaks

We did the right thing
