Instant Noodles by Kisa Ogino
You don’t understand,
Mumbling between mouthfuls,
He’s on the other side of the world
Learning to heal others
And I’m here
Learning to fight others.
It’s been one year three months two weeks and eight days
Since I’ve been warmed by his embrace
And I’ve just been trying to get warm nowadays.
With instant noodles?
She looks incredulous.
It’s not like I’m made of blubber at the moment.
