poem: "Like This"

Like This

I love you like this

like taking the first sip of coffee
or pulling bread from the toaster

like teetering on the edge of the pool
or drawing in the last cool breath before stepping outside

like staring at a Willow Arlenea painting
or listening to Prokofiev

like opening my eyes
or moving my fingers

like standing in the middle of the ocean
or swimming in the earth

like this.
