The Extraordinary

     I used to dream of the Extraordinary.
     A naively optimistic expectation that offered More than what was Now.
     A perpetual state of yearning.
     Then I found silence.
     Silence in the in-betweens.
     In-betweens—where you wonder what's behind the stars, feel the winter cool your nose and repeatedly tell your friends, "I'm so glad we're doing this."
     In-betweens—where you find the Extraordinary.

     This is what More feels like.
