I reached out to take your hand
we caught a patch of slush and slid into a ditch,
striking the passenger side into a hill
but we’re fine, everyone’s fine
we pull out
rent a car
and book our time with insurance-sanctioned
and I’m holding your hand again
because things are just things,
but we’re fine,
so everything’s fine.
Intimacy is a place
where truth and connection meet,
they shake hands,
they merge into one.
If you’re ever struggling to find me,
look for me there,
I’m always seeking it out where it is to be found.
And if you ever find me anywhere else,
return me home.
Freedom is found
in the simple things
a cup of coffee in the morning,
a beer at night
a hug between friends,
a kiss between lovers
freedom is found in sunsets,
cascading down upon our
fragile, strong, and beautiful selves.
Freedom is found in you and me,
all of us
Freedom is found in love,
made manifest in this moment
Make it count
