"The Quintessential Dynamic"

by Jeph Johnson


To me

it felt like "we"


Partner dancing 

through the season


Holding hands

and making 

the weather change


But clouds hid 

our only full moon

on the boardwalk

by the riverside


and cold wind ripped

through our embrace


We made jokes

about the debris

floating by 


as what I imagined 

was love

drifted out to sea
