Let them sit a while, see how they age.
It may be they're not quite right.

Approach with caution.

These little beauties
have been known to bite.

The Reason Why

The Night lays
her dark hand on mine.
Her voice in my ear, wind
through leaves, she whispers,

"These are the stars that shine…

… and this the moon
that calls the tides."

Her hand, a loving caress,
moves now upon my chest
and through the bone
to grip

the heart that beats
wild inside.

"This," she gently squeezes,
"is also mine.
And if it pleases
I will dine

upon that fine red meat
which beats
the rhythm of my name."

I am a man in love
and have risen above.

I tell her,
"That is why I came."
