Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy

Your homework is to stand
holding each other
for five minutes.

No talk, no movement,
no intimate touch—
a five-minute hug.

I see you next month,
so there’s no excuse
for not doing it.

The task is five minutes
body to body, breathing

You might like to think
about the feelings
that come and go,

or you may prefer
to stay in the moment—
out of your conscious mind.

If you feel the need,
you can close your eyes.
