udon noodles

you’re struggling, 

flush with udon noodle warmth

they refuse to cooperate with your brusque movements 

so you pause to pour more sake and joke about the time you tried to shake a chef’s hand as he prepared a meal

you’re smiling through open mouthed laughs 

swallowing hard and pulling fast 

I’m slowly realizing I’ve never loved anything 

quite as much as I love you, 

right now,

this second.
