And now I know that it is okay to love---

“Sometimes I close my eyes till I am
on a sea of falling dogwood blossoms…”

My heart
a gun;

smoke, warm, loaded.

The sun follows me
like yesterday’s newspaper,
a classified for an apartment
in the city.

Under the fern is a key,
I open the door
like a child opens his closet
looking for a monster.

There’s the dinner table where
I am reminded there is a place
where I am not alone.

Your meals
your eyes

I call,
“Hi, this is ____
leave a message.”

I’m not asking
to be
your lover,
your burden.

The window,
the clear—-exposed,
my mind.

“…But someday this won’t work.”
