I get the last piece of forever, now.

Got me a man
who says it as a verb,
disturbs the earth
to make me spin.

Got me 20+ years
of giggle-guffaw-tears,
and a way with words
he steeps me in.

Got me a thousand
little things that make
this new heart sing;
can handle anything

so long as he’s here,
too. Got you, and every
-thing fell into place, traced
deep in ink and sand and snow.


For Justin, as we head into another #20years. Shared at Poetic Asides
