it’s March again

Commemorating a full year of … this.

it’s March again

I want to see your face

__________________________again

I want to brush shoulders with strangers

_________and not flinch

step into a subway

________with no space

sing in a crowd of a thousand

________smiles


it’s March again

I want to touch your hand

____________________________again

I want to go out and come home

_________without fear

hug exuberantly

_________without asking

cram into a restaurant with the rest

_________of the city


it’s March again

please don’t leave me

_______________________again

don’t let this be another threshold

_________into darkness

another spring break

_________that lasts till May

another dividing line between before

_________and after


it’s March again

teach us the way

_________________again

the way of suffering and uncertainty and

_________childlike trust

of taking long walks

_________together

of holding plans loosely and living

_________right now


it’s March again

remind me

__________again

what it means

to

___breathe
