Us & More Than Us – Michael Morell

Image result for couple b & w photography

crouched only in refrigerator light
you remind me that I am hungry
but I don’t want to move or breathe
or lose this moment
so I stare at you staring into the light
picking what’s fresh enough to eat
from too old to forget until later
as I close my eyes waiting for what
you will bring back to the couch
in the dim light of the stereo dial
like the primitive hunter and gatherer
we are, loving and laughing between bits
of food and blue starlight
