Stark Signals

Holding open the door for me
waiting to see if I reach
for your hand
to claim skin as part
of this moment
Bluffed by the snow
and wind
or sent to the same
institution that grants
wishes
but unable to open
the mouth or heart
when we arrived
Aching to be back
on your couch with you
I wonder if you’re catching
on to these signals
I know we’re farther apart
then we meant to be
