They cut the cord and he howled.
You are my whole world; I am yours.
The threat of war, the fear of death: none of that in the photograph.
I give them all I can, and it buoys me endlessly.
I’ll still want to wake you up in the dead of night to whisper that I love you.
I live in anticipation of our coming together.
Love is just us.
I’m still holding out my heart to you, and you are so far away you can’t even see it.
I knew I was the worst father in the history of parenting.
You’ve quietly inspired me.
Intensity of fighting and making up is the shadow by which you guess the size of the thing.
…there, now I hear the cadence of your breath.
At midnight, I told you it was going to be greatest year of your life so far.
…shorthand for the longing built up
Feeling as if I can scrape the sky.
Sometimes it’s dogs. Sometime it’s trucks. Today, it’s phone cases, non-stop.
