We got naked together.
I wanted to
and I yelled it with such
passion that you had to
comply. I guess if you want to be
technical, we weren't really naked,
but close enough.
The hard, abrasive snow still burned and chewed
at our skin where it counts, forbidding
our desperate attempts to make
some kind of mark, to construct an angel as a
plea to heaven to keep us
It was the strangest thing that I have ever done,
yet one of the most satisfying.
I offered myself in the most
complete way I know how -
to the sky
to the ground
to the entire earth
to the weak gravity of that vibrant
that coils within us all and somehow prevents us
from falling away
(it's the best god I have)
to my confidence
to my timidity
to all my twisted contradictions
to my whole self
I suppose you can squeeze all
that your mind can hold
from the moment,
but the reality remains that we\'re just
kids being kids
and damn well making the most of it.
