Poem | Jody's Notes

 

The small dark, cozy

like holding hands

that block the light between them.

Surprisingly, this is a good thing.

We pond together, marsh ourselves

into intimacy; skinny-dip beneath the sheets.

Only the eyes, their pupils expanding like hopes,

draw light and offer it pooled and sweetened,

The dim dispersed by twinned glows.
