2000 Love Stories

poem

for mhc

started with a laugh after an explanation

never once was braiding hair a priority

lain his mane in my lap anyway

fed me olives off pizza slices

mentions that the beaches in Tuscany

do not have ferris wheels.

we can still spin in sunsets

starlight

where chanted prayers of artists

sound like whale songs remixed with haiku

jazz

and exhales of the afterglow.

a snowy Tuesday night in the city of wind

reheated pizza and his contempt of olives

personified perfect

future bliss
