Girl flies 2100 miles to meet girl

I swallowed pepper.


something about soulmates.




banana peppers. falafel.


she is attracted to my “good mom-ness”.


she catches food in her mouth —


dry cereal, fruit gummies.


(I eat the ones that fall to the floor


when she tosses them to me).


I am attracted to the way my anxiety

recedes and peace spreads through my arteries

when we talk.


“a whole new animal”


That’s what this is.


I think we have met before

in the womb


of this universe.


She talked of Plato’s forms and declared

my vegetable stir fry was “the form of lunches.”


I might be the form of myself when I am with her.

[Someday]. We are taking things slow.
