"I Am...Batman"

he finally surfaced and rang her up,
"hey, sorry about that disappearing act,"
he said quietly, looking for exoneration.

she giggled.

"it's okay," she replied.
"i knew you went to the cave
but would emerge eventually.
i just didn't know if you were sitting in the dark,
had learned to make fire,
or were decorating its walls
with drawings and paintings."

they shared a laugh over it
and she hoped he realized that
it was okay to come and go as he needed.

she just needed to know
if she should send alfred in after him
or if she should dust off the bat signal
and color the night sky with it instead.
