QUARANTINE


I need a cool wind

and stratus clouds

at sunrise

the way they break

the light

into a thousand shards


I need silence

the kind that isn't just

the absence of noise

but the presence

of something alive

and listening


I need just one

pristine thought

like "I love you"

like "I'm all right here"

to banish all the rest of them

to hold me steady

to show me the way


I need a good laugh

like, really good

and the comfort

of friends

who know my true name

but don't let it stop them

loving me anyway


I need to know

that we are better

than our fear

that our love really is

strong enough

to carry us through


I need a long

hot shower

followed by chocolate

with deep red wine

and you

to say I love you

and I'm not going

anywhere
