"...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

That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
