by thiiiiiiiiiiis much

measurements are arbitrary
man-made constructs
eventually agreed upon
one cup of rice
three hours from now
thirty-two inch waist
and so on
and so on
anyway
today i fell in love
wait pause i fell
more in love with you
by approximately
twelve perfect back scratches
eight hugs from a daughter
1.5 whiffs of perfume and sunlight
and one really weird encounter at target when that older woman thrust herself between us and then clamped an iron grip on my right arm and made us pose for a picture

that was weird a little bit
anyway
i love you.

you're amazing.
