close enough to count

almost. kissed
you made it seem like an inevitable
a trick on fate

almost. spoken
somewhere between magic
and stuttering photographs
trying so hard to create space
where it shouldn’t be.

almost. sweet
the way you read to sleep.
more real, I think
then anything else you’d said

almost. shared
a phrase or passage
for a moment
the best kind of neighbors

almost. enough
