get the door please it’s love (for Jack & George)

please
remove your hat
Love has entered the room
please remove your shoes
peel away whatever layers lie
between you and the earth
wiggle your toes
(you’re doing it right now, aren’t you?)
laugh
Love is in the room
stand and shake loose your bones
shift to one foot, to the other
like a child about to board the ride
Love sees you there
so clear your throat
and hum a song you’ve known forever
Love is waiting
open-handed
grab hold
let it swing you around
with your head thrown back
wet-eyed and wonder-filled
laughing
from your belly
Love is here

paper moon
