Weekend Visitation

It was an oft-repeated trip
Tulsa to Oklahoma City
And vice versa
Two hours of relative speechlessness
Radio on Friday
NPR on Sunday
And between these silences
Nothing was said
About the absences past
Or the neglect to come
Though we both knew it would
Two hours that let us
Feel the distance between us
More than we ever did when
In our separate cities
