For Harris John, Five Months Old Tomorrow – 12/13/14

Hubble Images a Swarm of Ancient Stars

 

You don’t know

   Now

How much I love you.

          I will probably be

         Some distant figure

         You barely remember,

And I’m sorry for that –

I did the best I could.

Just know this:

I held you one night,

         As the stars let through

         A glimpse of heaven

         Above the house

         In Williamsburg.

   Your soft breath

   Warmed my face

   As the world slept,

And in that moment

       I knew perfect and

       Everlasting love.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!
