Close your eyes and breathe.
Remember the night he first held your hand. Stop.
Hold your breath.
(he will never leave you he will never leave you like a shoreline on your creased palm)
We are stardust and sneezes and air pockets and last i love yous and lips in moments we forgot until we walked past the same corner she took a break from carrying a burden on a Saturday afternoon and you laughed when i did too
and all these things begin again so I wait like a lamp post, and each apartment complex is built one brick at a time,
so I breathe.
