For now,

November 9, 2008
Your arms around his waist,
his wrapped around your shoulders;
everything else loses its importance.
The meaning of the world subsides.

And in that one instant,
that one specular moment,
where touch heals everything,
it's all better.

The negative emotions
that got to you;
the pessimistic thoughts
that get the better of you -

as if the world is in an okay state,
free of war, without poverty or death,
everything is better -
even if it is just for now.
