‘’I’ll love you forever’’

You say



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.
