Whatever You Want to Do


I just heard my wife laugh in her sleep.
A slight sliver of moonlight snuck in through the shade.
Must have been good, for her
Smile was lucid and beautifully genuine...
Or possibly it was just a moment of pointless joy.
In any case, the moment swallowed me
Leading, like an excited child, to the page.
Opportunity to crystallize the moment,
Visceral and poignant:
Everything we are, found in a tiny locket of time.
When the laugh struck me,
It was as though I was lost-
The worries of everyday life weighing heavy
Haplessly...I was staring at the familiar ceiling,
Yearning for a way
Out of anxious worry.
Undeniably, her laugh released me sweetly.
