infidelities

At journey’s end

At journey’s end they were met by his lover and their daughter
Eerily waiting while baggage is claimed and passports are checked
Was he so eager to see her, his lover, after a connubial trip away?
Or was she, the lover, so desperate, missing him, that she trod on,
Trespassed on sacred turf, insinuated herself into the family picture–
Acting the role of chauffeur, greeting him, welcoming his wife back,
driving their daughter to the airport?
At journey’s end they were met by his lover and their daughter
Eerily waiting while baggage is claimed and passports are checked
