Reopening

When the restrictions lifted,
I binged on hugs,
not realizing how much
I’d missed the fleshy warmth
of faces, touching the cheeks
of my friends like a person
who has come out of a coma,
coating my heart in the happy bounce
of talking in real life,
the teetering mountain of stories
and even better, that quiet moment
between two people
sharing the same view
in the same spot,
pausing calmly
for unrushed breaths,
without signalling
the call is coming
to an end.
