i have thought of a million ways
to burn your name.
lock it in a deep cabinet
and never let it out.
like frothy waves curling
and falling as it reaches the shore
your vignette – a trance poem
flares up in little torches and mirrors
evincing roses in bold letters.
some affections are like gold:
immune to the vagaries of wear and tear
or like wine climbing
the graph of maturation,
with the leaping moment of time.
