blackened water tightens around the base of the neck

the sound of brown cloth swaddling a baby

the covers at 6AM when you realize you have more time in bed

crevices that are filled with hugs

a bubble bath at 4 in the afternoon

when you make eye contact with someone and you smile at each other

the heart eyes emoji

butterflies trying to break free from the walls of my stomach

loud gold jewelry, and french toast

free lemonade stands and an unparalleled heat

lipstick on teeth and the 4th of July

sadness and longing

the movie tootsie

that character from Annie that says, “oh my goodness oh my goodness”

and oh my goodness, indeed.
