.

.

.

A lot can be learnt between two people,

.

Sitting across from some table,

.

Drinking something warm and

.

Passing little pieces of themselves -

.

Little histories -

.

Anecdotal memorandums

.

And subtle aspirations

.

Between the expression of

.

Their eyes and

.

The posterity of a glance.

.

.

Those are the first steps to forever

.

In most storybooks -

.

In most love tales,

.

Most happily ever afters -

.

.

Beginning with something like

.

.

A table,

.

And two people,

.

.

And ending in some fashion of

.

'As though it were a dream,' or

.

As though its impression might
.
Paint a portrait of what's important
.
Between the span of a tablecloth,
.
Two ceramic cups,
.
And the abandonment of all else
.
Altogether, 
.
For the brief span and temporality 
.
Of that small, one moment before 
.
.
The impending, and imminent thereafter.
.

.
