Test Runs

.

With the preliminaries

behind us

it would be so easy

if you were the one.

.

Our awkward silences

and try throats

have subsided

shyness and foot shuffling

things of the past.

.

We've committed to memory

our respective family histories

disclosed in quiet moments

our first , best, worst lovers.

.

We've got each other's friends straight

who's on their own, who's still together.

.

I know where you were

when Kennedy was shot

and exactly how you like your eggs

you could list my favourite authors

and high school teachers.

.

You know where i'm ticklish

who i lived with at university

I know the comics you think aren't funny

and the jokes you think are.

.

Now that the hard part's over

wouldn't it be wonderful

if you were the one.
