in the beginning was

in the beginning was
the word, and the word
was stella, rapping so
gently at my
window with her icy
knuckles this morning –
despite forecasts
and city shutdowns
and a state of emergency
declaration and thousands
of plows deployed
across the boroughs,
and lining up outside
grocery stores under
a cool blue sky –
despite everything, still
leaning on her southern
charm, like a new art form

because we have become

because we have become
one another’s best
references for joy,
love, loss, and pain,
we can make new
discoveries with more
clarity and in half
the time and effort it
would take were
we to go at it
alone. when life
is a big jigsaw, and
time is a toddler caught
stealing pieces, it’s
always better to
have an ally
