it happens like this:
after you sign permission slips 8 minutes before you’re due at the bus stop and
after the nonstop fighting and ihatehimiwishhewasneverbornimsorunningaway and
after the cancer and the kisses and
after the exhaust from the bus disappears round the corner
you notice this
and you remember albert camus from college
and his invincible summer in the midst of winter
and having the courage to sprout when it would be easier to remain frozen
and you notice
the undeniable proof that hope exists here
on your front steps
just beyond your door
