I Awkwardly Embrace the World

Come here, get into these arms, I say.

Let me give you some love.

Oh wow, a hug. You’ll solve all my problems, the world says. What a miracle.

Even though you’re sarcastic, I say. I’m still going to give you a big hug. Get in here. C’mon. Don’t be shy. That’s nice, isn’t it? Isn’t that nice?

I mean, I guess it’s okay, the world says. Is the hug over yet?

Nope, not yet, I say. Not yet. Nope, not yet.
