An Ode to My First Internet Friend

Thursday, May 18, 2023

Dedicated to Justyna

Guide for Polish word: Jutro (tomorrow).

Stored draft of us,

parading unripened hillsides,

baring our teeth to unfractured sun.

We lift chins 

when our animals hook sunlight.

We bathe our pores in art.

We cheer for bodies and celebrate the living.

You, in film reels.
Me, flipping through Polaroids. 

I’ll meet you jutro.

We can take in each other’s faces 

and act out the rest of our lives.
