Maybe It’s Enough

By | 13 May 2024

Maybe it’s enough to sit on your bed with nothing
but a lamp turned on
The small yellow light emanating out into the darkness

Maybe it’s enough to make a new friend after so long
To feel the frenzy of electrons between
two people, the nervous flux
before the current settles

Maybe it’s enough if we never touch
But that I get to spend the whole night staring at the curve and drop
of your ankles.
Your bright orange socks

Maybe it’s enough to walk home afterwards
With a warmth blooming in my chest
To step out onto the street
And look up

There is a nimbus cloud forming now
You can see it – gray against deep purple
The night sky is changing
