Kamand Kojouri
“He tried to measure his day
by tallying the hours on his wrist.
I wiped it off and called him a prisoner.
He placed the hours on a scale
with hours from former days to compare.
I took a hammer and broke it all.
He bent down and picked up the
shards of minutes first
then swept the seconds.
I told him he’d missed a spot;
there were some sparkling specks left.
'What are they?' he asked.
'Those are moments,' I said.
'What are they made of?' he asked.
They are times, I thought, when you win a race
or win a heart.
They are times when you give birth
or lay something, someone to rest.
When you wake up in the morning
with a smile because anything is possible.
When someone compliments the thing
you hate most about yourself.
Times when you are embarrassed.
Times when you are hurtful.
Times when you relish in a hearty meal.
Times when you service others and
are content with a well-spent day.
'What are they made of?' he asked again.
'They are made up of times when we are fully present.'
I picked up one of the specks with the tip
of my finger.
'Do you remember this?' I asked.
'Of course,' he said, 'I was whistling in the kitchen
that morning.'
'Why?' I asked.
'Because of the knowledge
that I was loved.”
Kamand Kojouri

“Josh, you saw him," Tally says, "What did he look like? Did he look nice?"

"He looked like a person," Josh grunts.

"Don't be a spoilsport," Tally says, and Caid hears her smack Josh on the arm.

"Shortish, blondish, thinish," Josh says.

"Thank you, Josh," Caid says, "Your way with words astounds me yet again."

"Well, whatever," Tally says. "What did you guys talk about? You said he's nice?"

"We talked about a lot of things. And yeah, he's—I mean, we traded numbers, so hopefully he'll call."

"I hope so, too," Tally says. "I'm glad you have somebody to hang out with now."

"Because I was such horrible company?" Josh says, voice thick and deep like he's got a mouthful of ice cream.

"I wouldn't say horrible," Caid says. "Unbearable, maybe. Like one of those YouTube videos that never loads." And with that, he shoots a shit-eating grin in Josh's direction, and shovels a spoonful of ice cream into his mouth.”
