  • I am hungry today and I mean this in all the ways: hungry for toast cooked crisp and slathered with butter,

    hungry for four scrambled eggs with hot sauce, hungry for good coffee poured slowly over an open filter, hungry

    for someone to whisper to, to look at me in that way that means 'I have found comfort with you,'

    I am not hungry for promises or ceremony or names or grand gestures, I am hungry for eyes to look in mine, for

    hands to hold, for music, for ears in which to whisper.
