gesture (n).


You crossed over to me
from the other side of my kitchen like
to you it was crossing an ocean -

- it was that big of a gesture,
this tiny, precious thing,
that you would take
the first step and not me,
that you would leave behind
your points of reason (so well
prepared) and your solid
arguments and your need
to be right, and wrap me up,
even with your chin trembling.
