Intentional Hoping

“I want to see you,”

I should have whispered

In a situation that is orchestrated by intentions and an alignment of our schedules, not by chance

Not while I was weighed down

With the picnic I’d packed as it got dark

In more bags than one person should carry

Not with my brother
