I’ll pick up lattes from that place on 49th you like.
Some Cheese Danish, your favorite.
And stop at the newsstand for the latest rags.
We won’t talk. Promise.
Talk is overrated. Especially now.
Try not to think at all.
We’ll entrust time
to do what nothing else will.
What nothing else can.
To bring us back to life,
one shallow breath
at a time.
