matters of the heart in march, 2020

WRITTEN BY QUINN CHRISTENSEN

we are

small & drifting

far from each other

(the thing that grounds me)

 

I saw a photo of a couple kissing

through surgical masks

from the flu epidemic of the 30s,

collaged our faces in their place

 

we spend our days together, wandering

waterfalls

and nights alone wondering

what fall will mean—

 

for us,

for the world

 

and I wish I knew how to tell you exactly how I feel

because I think

I know

we’re running out of time.
