Love From Across a Table

They are sitting on opposite sides of a minuscule table, holding each other’s hands like they are worried they will otherwise drift slowly away, carried by a cloud of butterflies escaping from their stomachs. Grinning joyfully, because they cannot believe their good fortune. How they found each other serendipitously the other day at that party. Or maybe it is because, after being together for the better part of two decades, they still are crazy about each other.
