Silicone cookies make sad memories of you. Like human tissue out of color, something loosened
away from real breasts once you held tightly in love; now a dull object, out of your breath and tongue.
“Let’s just fake it,” as we are not each other’s anymore, like robot apps that asks, “How are you doing?”
Sorrow grips in the afternoons, like suns fading away and hiding… And I, still, would ask you, “When will you come back?”

You called away from home, those serene nights of longing. You wanted to see me, those dead nights, like Michael Furey’s love. How we dreamt, how we gripped each other were tastes for our tongues. My fiction in solitude is when you held every piece of me like hardened throbs. You were succulent in my heart and in my womb. My memory can never delete you, because from the dark hole, you saved me. Your love sufficed. I still love you.
FOR US, A LOVE PROSE
(Inspired by MacLeish’s Ars Poetica)
Cold evening of grey snow
You and I like stars hooked on a moon comb
Bliss of hearts innocent as dawn, wise as dusk
When the moon climbs and the sun slides,
– A poem be.
Two as one locked together
Espoused in bed in cold December
Not all too soon, but in slow embrace
Immortal and free, one, our hearts
– A poem be.
