A Hug

A purposeful stride across the room,
a draping of a body across my shoulders,
as I write lines on the page, capture a thought
a legal argument, a bit of facts,
a set of arms wrapping around me,
always without asking, without warning
attempting to change my focus
away from my work, my purposes
Attention grabbing,
attuned to her needs, her timing,
against the grain of my schedule, my focus
attesting to her will, above all
a hug, a hug, my kingdom for a hug
at your service, Miss E
