Haley After Work

Where will I go with this lovely young woman?
Where can I go? It's winter. Even the highways
Have turned into sheets of ice. Still, I should
Reach for her hand and lead somewhere,
If only across the parking lot from where we
Are standing, about to drive home. I can't let
Her leave. I look into her face, so beautifully
Brown, so seemingly pleased to be looking
At mine, and waiting to learn where we'll go.

hmm ... icy roads seem a bit dangerous for a ride, Tha park would be too cold. Is there a cafe nearby for some hot coffee, a snack, and conversation? Haley is such a pretty name.
