“Aren’t we all beginners when it comes to the heart, its four chambers never big enough to contain us, though we haven’t room for more? It takes so much work to get to the heart of the matter, a red fruit at the core of each conversation, little bonfires leaping between us when we kiss or hug or even just shake hands.”

From “Valentine” by Alison Townsend in Brevity journal
