Unlikely (for Tracy and Mal)

The biggest thing I know is that
we found the most unlikely joy.
Something that was held down
with the left little finger and tapped
upwards with the ring,
screen across screen: at.

When cats are let outside for the
first time, they sniff everything,
open-mouthed at the wonder of grass.
We take in the scent of the loved:
inhale til our lungs shudder,
we keep much of them in us.

Hours are always short, shorter:
dripped then bucketed out fast.
Always, we open our mouths
and breathe in our tremendous luck.
The biggest thing I know is that
we found the most unlikely joy.


- For Tracy Rudd (@ruddygood), and Mal McClenaghan (@skippy_2). My fellow Twitter romance couple. With love, and amazement at our luck. Rest lightly, Tracy.

No words! Just tears, sniffs and snot.

Thanks Jenny. I don't quite know what to say either, but there's both sorrow and wonderment involved.
