Museum Couple

No mahogany corpse
Will ever pull me
Away from you,
No slide shows,
No relics,
No speeches,
No bomb scares,
No biscuits,
A sleep
That lasts forever
But never calls itself
A death,
A stare that comes
From nothing
More than something
Ever could.
I need you more
Than my toes,
My feet
And my legs,
I will not walk away.
