Mark and the Speed of Light

Mark has traveled
a trillion times a trillion miles
in the last ten months,
down to the corner of space
by the street light
of a star.
For all that distance
he pulls clothes out of a basket
at my feet
and smiles with impish intelligence.
he seems to be asking,
are we there yet?
