I’d have to stare at them all night to take them in. It’s tempting. I plant a kiss on each of their heads. It will never be enough. A lifetime of kisses would not fill the space in me that belongs to them. In the morning, when they come for me before the sun is up, begging me to get up and insisting that they’re starving, I will search again for the feeling I have this moment, this sacred calm to stand against the day’s obligations and terrors that conspire to blow disappearing dust over all that I know to be true right now.
