making plans for breakfast after we’ve been lounging in bed for a few hours
kisses have been shared and fingertips have explored
earlobes and back of necks and the curve of the spine
we have discussed deal-breakers
almost as if to confirm to the other
how perfect it is for the two of us
to be together,
we have discussed how odd it is
for life to be made up of numerous
seemingly random choices and events,
what I suppose most people would call fate.
Then he gets out of bed and opens the blinds to let the light in
and I open the door and find in front of me
a brand new beginning.
