The Heart of the Matter

Off the Coast of Love

My wife tells me I should pay more attention to details --
the house, the car, the lawn --
there's a thousand things,
by sunset,
that need to be done.

She's right, of course, it's true.

If only I wasn't floating
three feet off the ground today,
caught in the updraft
of a single gaze from you,
like a thousand cyclones
off the coast of love.


(Excerpted from Thirst Quench Thirst)
