A Reminder

Updated: Jan 13

The sunrise is not yet here

and strangers bob on shoulders. I fall asleep

in mist

to awake at a gas station—

sandwich and soda, bubbles ease

to a light of soft pinks and oranges. Frozen waterfalls, yawns, and icy stairs, in stillness I scan

the ice

that surrounds me. "We deserve nothing more than is given in this moment,"

she smiles to me

and reaches for her camera.

Interpretation that is warm, I grip the freedom

that is so tangible

and new.
