like a long day,
and a hot shower.
sits on you
like a square of warm butter on blueberry muffins,
like peanut butter honey on applesauce pancakes.
like fresh bread and loaded potato soup,
like the sun on a Sunday afternoon.
like the cool side of the pillow,
like mac n cheese in your 30s.
doesn’t want to say goodbye
like corn between your teeth,
like the memory of custard pie.
like the last cup of winter’s cider,
like putting your sweaters in the back of your closet.
