thank you for: running down the block with me, churning out memories, double high fives; for carefully composing this, and by this i mean us; for us; for grabbing my hands from across tables and sleeping on my shoulder in cabs; for embracing these shortcomings and those words, each one, every day; understanding. thank you again, for—patiently—watching me dust off my patience and find someone self-assured, here she comes, thank you; for cereal, the box you went to three different stores to find, for pizza slices and polish diners and dive bars, broadway shows and coney island cyclones. 

thank you for souvenirs.
thank you for standing by. 
thank you, for you.

(oh, and: thanks for putting that jalapeño popper in my coat pocket, what a nice surprise.)
