she says

he knows I’ll come to you
he sent me to the rehearsal but he knows there’s time to be here

he says

but the pavilion is closed it’s out of season

she says

yes I have to be there in 20 minutes

condenses between his shoulder blades

she plucks a sliver of water from his eye
licks her finger
