How Could This Be?


 

How could this be --

that at my age
I've become a virgin

& write love poems
ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffor the very first time?

How could this be?

that now I love like a waterfall:
giving everything away
wwwwwwwwwiiiwwwwithout being diminished ...

How could this be?

that when the Great World
wants to give one of its secrets
it hides all else
mmmmmmmmmmaking even heaven & earth disappear...

Since this is the case...

How could this be --

that you love me back
 and hold me
like the banks of a river

and yet --
ssssssssssstill sleep
wwwwwwwwwwwith another?
