a love story

begun with a desert promise
sealed with a kiss
love like bombs bursting in air
strong enough to crush a
national anthem
on both knees
the stirrings of eternity
magic dipping its toe
into ripples of the unknown
they plunged
they dared
they believed
they kissed some more

that funky time
when tears of sadness
collude
collide
conspire
with tears of joy

do you really want to be with me
or are you just to afraid to leave me
do you dance naked in the moonlight
or curl up with a wool blanket, socks on
can you join the revolution
or will you find another show
on netflix
click, click, click
as life passes by

trust me, he said
as he drove the back plow
that dozed over the sturdy embankment
of endless
memories and dreams...
now mere pebbles
lining the river's shore
enduring the hostile, wicked stream

i sit before the lonely man
wno tells me
bereft
that he lost his father in the holocaust
that i too
mourn for his father
and for every father mother and child
lost in every holocaust across the world
across time
i weep every time a child's limb
is torn from her body
the violent carnage that rips our guts
and tries to steal our souls

The mother sings
as feet dance in unison
around the table

The mother hears them wail
when the earth moves
and there is nowhere left
for their feet

The mother knows
when silence is broken

and suffers
when she takes the children home

when the mother is angry

everyone should run for their lives

the first kiss

wild reckless abandon
soulful passion
only one language 
when the heart speaks

no boundaries
no borders
truth envelops
and the body says yes

to love
