“Love” Poems For Kathy Number Twelve

WINTER ARGUMENTS

I can remember you, Kathy,

by a single tree

as sere as it was thin

where a path dwindled

and two robins, or perhaps three,

(it was a heightened afternoon

and we had argued wearily)

piped pipe thin.

Your love since then

has proven me deciduous –

but where my lying fancies stray

I have manacled my mind

to make of us

a devilish cast, a dud tree,

your mouth sucking mine,

and a lark descending wretchedly.

(from “”Love” Poems For Kathy / Green. Laced. Leaves”)
