How to Love

To love her is to love the impossible,
he doesn’t say this but he writes it down
on his palm. Loneliness, he defies
and that is a given but it is impossible.

He pours his sadness down, with a smile,on a half washed ducky yellow mugand takes one swig. Alcohol makes it worse,he says, but he doesn’t show this.

To lover her is to love the impossible
his palm says, his lips not saying, only taking in
what he had poured out. His eyes, now slightly red,
driving out contents of alcohol in the form of tears –

I watch him, amused at how this dialysis works.
He tells me tomorrow,
after he had swallowed everything in,
he will be sober. He tells me tomorrow,
is another day for the impossible.
