Dueling Laptops


Dueling laptops,
we two teacher lovers sit,
across from each other,
the kids are in bed.

No date.
No Scrabble with music.
No late night movies.
little conversation,

Music and papers,
brief thoughts exchanged
a sentence shared
from a paper,
an idea compared.


When will it end?
The papers smother us.
Struggling for breath.
Can’t breathe.
Until spring break,
when the duel ends.
