“Love is raw as freshly cut meat,

mean as a beetle on the track of dung”

~ Jim Harrison  from Songs of Unreason


..and I recall the day we got stuck
in that elevator…all those years ago
For awhile, we were the last ones on earth
We talked for hours
peeling away layers
until we reached our cores
That’s when we knew our love was raw
as we held in our hands
(to accept and cherish)
each others’ flaws
