To all of you

My heart dropped into my stomach, kicking

Like the baby that’s just started growing in yours

when they told me

you’d struck bottom

and proved yourself to be

what they’d all worried

you were.

But, like that time when

you&I

sat out on the wet lawn

and you laughed at everything

while the coffee steamed our faces

and the porch lights dimmed

…I loved you, simply silhouetted.
