"When Tanita hugs you" -- a skinny poem

Oh my! It's Poetry Friday and for the first time in an AGE I am back and writing with my poetry sisters. This month, it's skinny poems.

The rules of a skinny poem:

Eleven lines. The first line can be any length; the last is as long as the first because it uses the same words, though they can be in a different order. ALL of the intervening lines are a single word, AND lines 2, 6, and 10 use the same word.

My poem is written following my vacation in San Francisco with my husband, during which I caught up in person with my poetry sister, Tanita Davis. It was so phenomenal to see her and hug her and get to talk with her, and so I decided to write about her.

When Tanita hugs you
you
know
you’re
hugged.
You
feel
love.
Lucky
you,
when Tanita hugs you.
