Hugs…

Hugshug
never last long enough
unless they’re with
your great aunt Miriam
who reminds you of garlic,
old men and dank closets

Hugs
never last long enough
even if they’re with
your year old nephew timmy
who may have pooped his
diapers or burped on your
shoulder or drooled on you

Hugs
never last long enough
even if you’re embarrassed
because the cute girl
down the street who’s
too young for you
hugged you much too close and too long and even stuck her tongue in your ear

Hugs
never last long enough
even when you really want them
to last all night and past
breakfast and lunch and dinner
and don’t seem to stop even for the moments they do

Hugs
never last long enough
especially when you
want them to go on and on and on
because you like giving
and getting and remembering
the last time you hugged someone
like this and how nice that was too

Hugs…
