at any given
moment, i pick up a
memory at the
lost and found, turn
it over and over
to locate where i
may have hidden a

if circumstances
were any

would still
find ourselves
here, hands tied,
longing for
the sake of
longing

we will spend more time

we will spend more time
on longing than actually
doing anything

because we can stave

because we can stave
off hunger for much longer,
treasure these moments

when we are together, stow
them away for a rainy day
