Love One Thing / by Ryan Koch

Today I will rise and I will love one thing

stubbornly,

fully.

I will love one thing that cannot return my love,

one thing that will not say thank you.

I will love one thing that officially does not matter,

one thing that is not news-worthy.

I will love one thing quietly,

the way the fog waters lettuce leaves.

And this will change nothing.

This will rescue no one,

except,

possibly,

myself.
