Just One

one white circle
two white triangles
six black lines
two black dots
one golden dot
that is all it took
to create this
Japanese icon of
cuteness, embraced
by the world--
embraced by my
soon 15-month son
as he carries the
pink Hello Kitty
purse around
our house; a
cast off from
his sister. The
human heart
needs only some
simple measures
to feel connected
and there is only
one small word,
which describes
both the multitude
of the world's need
and my passion
for you when
you go hunting
for Tylenol for
my aching ear
at 2:16 am.
Such love. It
is just love.
It is always
love. It is
this love.
