Falling is inevitably followed by crashing.
-Instead, Fold into each other
--Grow out of one another
Drink Jameson and dance to reggae
Discover you both love mint chocolate chip its-its
dream of raising a boxer/pit puppy
Share music, and books—fall in love with his books
Smoke a spliff & watch him draw
Love the concentration and care in his eyes while he works
Fall asleep listening to sound of his pencils dance on paper
Have a naked shoulder ride to the vaulted ceiling of a rented Memphis room on a determined mosquito hunt.
Fall to the bed laughing satisfied with the promise of a buzz free nights sleep.
Feed each other fried pickles
Share ghost stories and Ethiopian food.
Get caught in the rain driving through Georgia.
Watch lightening hit the highway.
Tell each other cheesy things in redneck southern accents
“I love you like a biscuit loves butter, like Nawlins loves jazz…”
Give yourself permission.
