curfew

I’m sorry I laughed
when you stood
in my doorway
this morning
asking about when
I got home last night

I didn’t intend for it
to seem disrespectful
you just looked
so uncomfortable
trying to be stern
and concerned

and it was too funny
the two of us
having this exchange
for the first time
a decade and a half
past my teen years
