‘’I’ll love you forever’’

You say

 

Thanks

but I’ll just take today

 

corn shifting gold

honeysuckle curl

 

& the high wide eye

of this summer sky.

Thought unfolds

like Chinese puzzle

 

you’re in my mind’s eye

I have no solution.

 

 

*

You sent me lilies

‘’As beautiful as you’’

 

But I loved another

& the lilies kept coming

 

an epitaph to love flaring.

 

Now on my window

pink lilies sit

 

fresh & bright

as woman’s skin:

 

you crept to your lair

I’m still insane

 

remembering lilies

one brief spring.
