I untangle myself from you with thick, wild, bubbling laughter

Tickled by the memories that still delight

Banishing taunts about the unsustainable alchemy of supernova love.

Grateful, I am

That life is short enough to remember and long enough to forget

Shimmering relationships that last until they don’t,

But laughter is forever.
