I’m going to spend the day this way

I say this even though I know it isn’t true

if I bothered to count the number of creatures in our care, the number would be absurd

but, for a moment, I entertain it

while his chest rises and falls under my cheek

and warm skin on warm skin evokes memories of…simpler? times

when the only hungry animals in our world

were us

for each other
