LIKE FALLING MADLY IN LUST WHEN JUST HEARING A DEATH SENTENCE

 

it’s that way with

him. I think of

mothers starting

to fade as their

daughters blossom

where time is

churned and

telescoped and

someone in 2009

can fall in love

with a man born

in 1620. In

another life, I’d

be your muse

as you’ve been

mine but then,

without this

wild longing

for what

isn’t, what

can’t be, no

poems

would happen
