Have You Written? & Other Poems


Have You Written?

Have you written a poem for me?

    I have tried and failed
    a hundred times to make
    your unalterable beauty indelible
    upon the page

    or, in other words,

Unlimited Time Offer

Night Garden

Lit from behind
the night air cool on the skin
cigarette smoke flitting like the moths
by your company more than
the alcohol burning in my bloodstream
more about each other
an exploration of intertwining thoughts
