Poem: What 'Yes' Looks Like 

Yes is warm breakfast and wine when the sun goes down
Yes is laced fingers in lieu of gloves
Yes is laughing through the night
Yes is handwritten letters
Yes is smiling silence
Yes is laying in each others’ arms after an orgasm
Yes is snow day spooning and Full House re-runs
Yes is shared cigarettes after sex
Yes is skipping down evening sidewalks
Yes is picnics and profile photos
Yes is building an IKEA bookshelf
Yes is selfies on game night and kissing when the ball drops
Yes is morning texts and champagne
Yes is having nothing to wish for.
