A Story about Transformation

One year I spent 52 hours hugging Sara

We stood with our arms around one another on street corners

at parks

by the lake

We strained and shifted, eventually

discovered breath and how to stand up straight

 

We stuck out, went unnoticed

We relocated

We were called artists and lesbians

We accumulated

smiles

scowls

skeptical glances

We embraced strangers and they embraced us

We arrived

 

Eventually

Our bodies evolved to fit together with ease

Hugging simple as breathing passed hours into seconds

And before we new it a year had passed

Before us

There was an opening
